9780061430725: The First Paul: Reclaiming the Radical Visionary Behind the Church's Conservative Icon

"Borg and Crossan reveal a figure who, besides being neither anti-Semitic, anti-sex, nor misogynist, stresses social and political equality among Christians and between them and others. A refreshing and heartening exculpation of a still routinely maligned figure of the first importance to culture and civilization." -- Booklist (starred review)

John Dominic Crossan and Marcus J. Borg--two of the world's top-selling Christian scholars and the bestselling authors of The Last Week and The First Christmas--once again shake up the status quo by arguing that the message of the apostle Paul, considered by many to be the second most important figure in Christianity, has been domesticated by the church. Borg and Crossan turn the common perception of Paul on its head, revealing him as a radical follower of Jesus whose core message is still relevant today.

Product Description:

In this exciting follow-up to The Last Week and The First Christmas, Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan once again use the best of biblical and historical scholarship to present a new understanding of early Christianity - this time rescuing the apostle Paul from the church.

But what if some of these views were imposed on Paul by the early church in an attempt to transform his drastically egalitarian views into something more 'acceptable'? True to form, these highly respected authors turn the common perception of Paul on its head, and reveal him as a radical follower of Jesus whose core message is still relevant today.
