About the Book

St. Barnabas, one of the pillars of the infant Christian Church, is a Cypriot Jew who found his salvation in Jesus Christ. A likely author of the letter to the Hebrews, he teamed with St. Mark to establish the first Christian Church in North Africa. Beloved by his compatriots and reviled by his enemies, he paid the ultimate price in a blazing house fire, but not before leaving an indelible footprint for all believers yet to come.

About the Author

John Sager is a retired United States Intelligence Officer whose services for the CIA, in various capacities, spanned more than a half-century. Like many of his colleagues he was skeptical of the Christian faith until, in his early forties, he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Since then he has been an active apologist for Christianity, leading Bible study groups, as a lay teacher and, currently, an active participant in the BeFrienders ministry. A widower, he makes his home in the faith-based Covenant Shores retirement community on Mercer Island, Washington.
