Product Description

Is Paul the true founder of Christianity? Did he seriously distort the original teachings of Jesus and the first 12 apostles? Might he have overreacted to his upbringing as a Pharisee? In St. Paul: The Apostle We Love to Hate, Karen Armstrong knocks down straw men to enable us to see again the intellectual dynamism of the greatest missionary in the history of the church.

Publisher's Description

St. Paul is known throughout the world as the first Christian writer, authoring fourteen of the twenty-seven books in the New Testament. But as Karen Armstrong demonstrates in St. Paul: The Apostle We Love to Hate, he also exerted a more significant influence on the spread of Christianity throughout the world than any other figure in history. It was Paul who established the first Christian churches in Europe and Asia in the first century, Paul who transformed a minor sect into the largest religion produced by Western civilization, and Paul who advanced the revolutionary idea that Christ could serve as a model for the possibility of transcendence. While we know little about some aspects of the life of St. Paul—his upbringing, the details of his death—his dramatic vision of God on the road to Damascus is one of the most powerful stories in the history of Christianity, and the life that followed forever changed the course of history.
