Summary
"A profound and moving journey into the heart of Christianity that explores the mysterious and often paradoxical lives and legacies of the Twelve Apostles--a book both for those of the faith and for others who seek to understand Christianity from the outside in. Peter, Matthew, Thomas, John: Who were these men? What was their relationship to Jesus? Tom Bissell provides rich and surprising answers to these ancient, elusive questions. He examines not just who these men were (and weren't), but also how their identities have taken shape over the course of two millennia."--Jacket
Summary
The author of The Disaster Artist details his visits to holy sites in Jerusalem, Rome, India and other world regions to explore the paradoxical lives, legacies and evolving identities of the 12 Apostles
