More About Apostle by Tom Bissell
 
 
 
Overview
The story of Twelve Apostles is the story of early Christianity: its competing versions of Jesus's ministry, its countless schisms, and its ultimate evolution from an obscure Jewish sect to the global faith we know today in all its forms and permutations. In his quest to understand the underpinnings of the world's largest religion, Tom Bissell embarks on a years-long pilgrimage to the apostles' supposed tombs, traveling from Jerusalem and Rome to Turkey, Greece, Spain, France, India, and Kyrgyzstan. Along the way, Bissell uncovers the mysterious and often paradoxical lives of these twelve men and how their identities have taken shape over the course of two millennia.

Written with empathy and a rare acumen--and often extremely funny--Apostle is an intellectual, spiritual, and personal adventure fit for believers, scholars, and wanderers alike.
