9780061430732: The First Paul: Reclaiming the Radical Visionary Behind the Church's Conservative Icon

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. For many, Paul has become a conservative icon whose letters have been used to justify systems of oppression - for example, endorsing slavery and subordinating women. 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.

Review:

"Paul is one of the most controversial figures in Christian history--and one of the most misunderstood. . . . Many will be thrilled with this fresh, erudite portrait of the man."--Publishers Weekly
