On trial for religious heresy and fomenting public insurrection, Paul the Apostle must justify his actions or else face banishment or death. Convinced that people can only save themselves by accepting his message of suffering, supplication, and life after death, Paul engages Hebrew scripture and a messianic vision of the world to come.

Hammer of God

    An extraordinary piece of work. An enormous challenge for any actor and director. David Robson has researched with tenacity to bring the story of Paul to an audience with lucid, uncompromising and searing writing. A story of the challenges of mankind of looking for understanding in life; of the power of faith and the benefits and downside of faith itself. A story for all to listen, to digest and benefit from - a memorable experience.
