Today's episode features Christos Tsiolkas discussing his new novel Damascus.
Damascus tells the story of Saul of Tarsus. Saul was a Greek speaking Jew, a tent-maker who some two thousand years ago was met on the road to Damascus by a blinding light and was convinced that he must bring the teachings of the Jewish prophet Jesus to the world.
Damascus is a story perhaps well known to many, while others may not have encountered the tent-maker whose letters came to spread Christianity to the world. .
