I have written a book that I can best categorize as Biblical fiction, Much
like that which Hollywood made epics such as The Robe or Ben Hur. It is
Titled Chosen Instrument: A Fictional Account of the Life Of Paul, an Apostle
The story Is just over 70,000 words, without forward or epilogue.
This book puts a very real human persona to one of Christianity's most
important figures after Jesus himself, as Paul was responsible for almost
half of the New Testament.
Based loosely upon the Book of Acts, Chosen Instrument tells the story pf
Saul/ Paul, who was chosen by his religious leaders to help crush the infant
Christian church, only to find himself convinced that he was chosen by God to
bring Christ's message to the world. And bring it to the world he did, at a
considerable personal cost.
The story centers itself around the life long friendship between Paul and
Marcus, a Roman Centurion. Though worlds apart in both religious beliefs and
attitudes, these men have a strong bond of love and friendship, which becomes
severely tested by Paul's conversion.
This book is both moving and inspirational to anyone, regardless of their
beliefs. It has romance and adventure, self-sacrifice and selfless
love, murder, attempted murder, a demon, corrupt politicians, a maniacal King,
miracles and a triumphant courtroom climax. We get to know Paul as a man, not
as the saint that we see him today. A man with all of our feelings and
desires, both heroic and flawed. A man, who with Jesus' direction and help,
changed the world. And that fact is indisputable. It is a story that has
waited a long time to be told.
I know that this kind of fiction is not mainstream, but perhaps, given the
terrible events of the September, now is the right time for it to be told.
There seems to be a spiritual awakening going on, rising like the phoenix out
of this horrible tragedy, and this might lead for a new interest in a work of
this type which gives some insight to the birth of the early Christian church
in a format that is both entertaining and exciting. Perhaps even Hollywood
will consider bringing back the religious epic, as they tend to recycle ideas
from the past, and Chosen Instrument would be an ideal vehicle.
I have the manuscript ready to send if interested. It is double spaced and
unbound with page number and title printed on every page (249) printed on one
thank you for your consideration
