Apostle or Bones that Shine like Fire
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Tom Bissell spent four years travelling to the Twelve Apostles’ reputed resting places, visiting more than 50 churches in nine countries from Spain to India. His account of this personal pilgrimage is punctuated with insights from biblical scholarship and his conversations, on religious, political and philosophical questions, with people he met. The result is an exploration of the lives and deaths of Jesus’ earliest followers and also of the ways in which their identities were shaped as Christianity evolved.
