Apostle, Or, Bones That Shine Like Fire
Apostle, Or, Bones That Shine Like Fire Travels Among the Tombs of the Twelve By Bissell, Tom, 1974- Book - 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which dissects the legends that have grown up around each of the twelve biblical apostles, along with Paul, the self-proclaimed "13th Apostle." Since very little is factually known about any of them, the author travels to a location associated with each of them through legend, and along the way gives a free-wheeling tour of early Christian history, art, and mythology. Other readers have found his off-handed, somewhat skeptical tone annoying; I found it refreshing.
