"From a youth spent as a devout and strict scholar-Jew and fierce persecutor of Christians, to his miraculous conversion on the road to Damascus, to his tireless missionary work and martyrdom in Rome, Paul of Tarsus is one of the key figures of Christianity. With a charming and combative character, St. Paul emerges from this novel in all his complexity: through the history of that his time, de Wohl retraces the decisive stages of the path that led Paul to become one of the most inspired apostles of the Christian message, and gives us humanity and the greatness of a man who, driven by love for Christ and neighbor, he was able to give to a world in decline, a flame alive and overwhelming with a new faith."-- cataloger's translation of http://www.libreriauniversitaria.it/

"Appena tredicenne, Giovanna inizia a sentire una voce, che le chiede di farsi carico del destino di Francia. Si ribella alla volontà del padre, che la vuole vedere sposa, per seguire un'altra strada, l'unica che sente sua: incontrare il "gentile delfino" e salvare il regno dall'assedio degli inglesi. Un'adolescente del Quattrocento francese, che non ha mai cavalcato in vita sua, riesce a conquistare capitani, prelati, nobili, uomini di cultura, re, con le sue irremovibili convinzioni, il suo carisma ispirato, la sua incredibile visione tattica in battaglia, la sua fede oltre ogni ragione: questa è la storia di una delle figure più enigmatiche e affascinanti della Storia. L'avventura vera della giovane contadina divenuta soldato e consacrata al mito, raccontata come un romanzo da un grande narratore di "vite eccellenti", per ritrovare, oggi più che mai, tutta l'incredibile modernità della Pulzella che diede la vita in nome della sua fede."--Cover
