When starting this novel, I began to share with some of my friends my preliminary research. The reader might find it of interest to see how the story evolved, and what may have motivated my need to share with you this ancient story. You'll find my blog on my webpage, although, hopefully, the actual novel has been improved since.

Stan I.S Law
A historical Novel
Peter and Paul is an intuitive sequel to my bestselling historical novel Yeshûa—Personal Memoir of the Missing Years of Jesus.
The two journeys, which Peter and Paul took, illustrate the contrasting views of the essence of the scriptural teaching, each necessary for the fulfillment of its intent. The lives of the two apostles show that there are many ways to the Kingdom of Heaven.
ALL FIVE STAR REVIEWS:
Review by: Marlon Clark.
“Peter and Paul” is a great book. It is as filled with action as with poetic prose. Yet, after this fascinating exposé on the lives of the two principal apostles, Law treated us to a surprise like no other. He added the notes he’d made which led to the development of his novel. The notes he’d made during his research. I’ve never had an opportunity to peek into a writer’s mind until now. An utterly unique idea, which helped me, even after the fact, so to speak, to understand the novel better. Thanks for the novel and special thanks for the notes. Most enlightening.
Review by: Barbara Woolfe:
Iam still amazed how Stan Law managed to unfold history before my eyes. Love, hate, murder, mystery, tension, philosophy and metaphysics are all mixed in a cauldron of a fast paced novel that kept me reading into the early hours. The characters are as real: strong yet with human weaknesses; very human, yet rising head and shoulders above the others. Well, above most of us.
PS. The novel is worthy successor to Law’s Yeshûa—Personal Memoir. If you liked one, you’ll love the other. I did!
Review by: Adam Kerry:
When in school, I was told to study the Acts of the Apostles. I found them boring. Many years have passed since…
I just finished reading Law’s Peter and Paul; surely a faithful representation of history, which reads like a thriller with historical murder story overtones. In addition, Stan Law shares his philosophy with us, enriching us with the depth of his knowledge and even more so with the depth of his metaphysical understanding.
An extraordinary book, a worthy successor to his Yeshûa—Personal Memoir of the Missing Years of Jesus.
Review by: Bohdan Czytelnik:
What I find interesting about this book is that, although it is about preachers, the book itself is in no way preaching. It strikes me as a serious attempt to present the incredible difficulties that the early Christians faced to aver the “Good News”. Both characters, Peter and Paul, are very real, endowed with great talents but also with foibles as ordinary men. This is a book that all Christians should read, and non-Christians would enjoy a novel that, in spite of its metaphysical content, reads like a thriller!
Also, there is an added bonus at the end.
Review by: Jo Steinman:
Since I read Law’s Yeshûa, I wondered how would it be possible to spread the teaching such as was implied in that novel. The complexities of the international relations of that day, must have multiplied the difficulties, which the protagonists had to face.
And yet, Stan Law, with his usual expertise created a reality in which Peter, Paul, and finally Nero, had to face the challenges to establish their particular vision of reality. It is a masterly novel of psychological diversity.
Review by: Anetta Bach:
I read Peter and Paul in a proof form. As in his previous novels, Stan Law offers us an in-depth psychological study of two men struggling to meet their destinies. The characters come to life, the surroundings are real. I was transported some 2000 years back into the history, at the very beginning of Christianity. It is amazing how different those days were. Perhaps so was the intent of Yeshûa’s teaching.
Those were very different times, yet, on closer examination, we, humanity, do not appear to have changed much. Perhaps not at all.
