'Paul, Apostle of Christ' is an intelligent, stirring biblical drama

Too restrained, perhaps, to have made more of an impression in theaters, Andrew Hyatt’s “Paul, Apostle of Christ” is easily the class act of the year’s Christian-themed dramas so far. Now available for streaming on Amazon Video and iTunes (and due to be released June 19 on DVD and Blu-ray), it’s a somber, moving portrait of one of the early church’s most significant figures, who led the way at a time when Christians were being burned alive in the streets of Rome, or condemned to death in the arena.
