Did the author have direct contact with every one of the characters and disciples outlined in this book before writing it? Where does all that so-called "valid" information come from? Heresay? Rumours? I don't believe half the stuff the book contains. I think most of it is made up to fill its pages. In fact, I have not read all of it since it sounds more like imaginary than real-life situations. I can understand that some historical data is hard to get, but some of the stuff in there is unbelievable - if true.
The book was on sale - that's why I purchased it,and also because I thought it would be a "reference book" on the disciples I could turn to but I don't think I'll use it for that.

Very good addititon to any study of the life of the Apostles and the their lifestyle. For a small book it is very exhaustive.

I can't imagine that I was alone in wondering where the majority of the apostles went to spread the Gospel and establish churches after Pentecost. I had never seen a book with such information--until I came upon this wonderful book! It is thorough, documenting that which can pretty much taken as fact, and then adding that which is "rumor." I welcomed the author's comments. If you don't mind books that are somewhat scholarly and at the same time very readable, this book is for you!
