Few historians immersed themselves in their topics like best-selling, noted author Ernle Bradford. Specializing in the Mediterranean world and naval topics, Bradford was an enthusiastic sailor himself and spent almost thirty years sailing the Mediterranean, where many of his acclaimed books are set. He served in the Royal Navy during World War II, finishing as the first Lieutenant of a destroyer, and afterwards worked as an editor and correspondent for the BBC. Now, E-Reads is proud to present his engaging series of military histories to a new generation of readers.
PAUL THE TRAVELLER Saint Paul and his World
The story of Saint Paul - the thirteenth apostle. Born into Asia Minor's Jewish aristocracy and a passionate student of scripture, Paul was part of a crowd that killed Stephen, a deacon regarded as the first Christian Martyr. But on the road to Damascus, Paul experienced a miracle that would change his life and in turn change history. This conversion experience convinced him that his true master was the man who would come to be known as Jesus Christ. Drawing on his vast command of ancient history and blending it with superb story-telling skills, Bradford weaves a tale that takes the reader from city to city as Paul spreads the teachings of Christ despite being beaten, stoned and shipwrecked. It's a thrilling tale and stirring biography of a man whose devotion and rhetorical genius laid the groundwork for the religion that soon swept the civilized world.read more
