Apostle

Full Product Description

Peter, Matthew, Thomas, John: Who were these men and what was their relationship to Jesus?

Tom Bissell gives us rich and deeply informed answers to those ancient questions.

Written with warmth, humour, and a rare acumen, Apostle is a brilliant and exhaustive synthesis of travel writing, centuries of biblical history, and a deep lifelong relationship with Christianity. Bissell explores not just who these renowned and pious men were (and weren't), but how their identities have taken shape over two millennia.

Bissell, in his search for this elusive set of truths, has travelled the world, visiting holy sites from Rome and Jerusalem to Turkey, India, and Kyrgyzstan, and he captures vividly the rich diversity of Christianity's global reach.

Apostle is an unusual, erudite, and hilarious book, an intoxicating combination of religious, intellectual, and personal adventure.

Apostle by Tom Bissell was published by Faber & Faber in April 2016 and is our 56461st best seller. The ISBN for Apostle is 9780571234745.
