An Archangel's Travels with St. Paul
If you appreciate a leisurely read which still feeds you spiritually, then look no further than Robert Harrison's Oriel's Travels. This tells the story of the apostle Paul's life from when he first appears in the Book of Acts as the great persecutor of the Christians to when he is safely ensconced in Rome awaiting trial.
Or, as the blurb on the cover says, "From fanatical destroyer of the followers of Jesus to fearless gospel pioneer — the incredible story of the man central to the formation of the Church!" The whole journey is related from the perspective of Archangel Oriel.
This book is an easy read which will remind you of those parts of the New Testament you have forgotten, or maybe it will even encourage you to go and read them for the first time! If you don't get around to buying it yourself, then add it to your birthday or Christmas list.
