David Suchet (well-known for his starring role in productions of Agatha Christie's Poirot) hosts In the Footsteps of St. Paul, a documentary quest to better understand one of early Christianity's most notable figures--St. Paul the apostle. St. Paul was controversial in his own time; today he is remembered as a former persecutor of Christians who converted to the faith through a divine miracle, and was crucial in transforming it from a small Jewish sect into a world-wide faith. St. Paul is believed to have traveled 10,000 miles by foot across the Roman Empire, let alone sea travel; Suchet seeks to retrace St. Paul's journey, and learn more about the man behind the missionary by talking to archaeologists, scholars, clerics, and local citizens. As enlightening as it is fascinating, In the Footsteps of St. Paul is highly recommended. 2 episodes, 108 min., widescreen, SDH subtitles.
