Review quote

"A refreshing and heartening exculpation of a still routinely maligned figure of the first importance to culture and civilization."--Booklist (starred review) "In this scholarly and engaging account . . . Borg and Crossan successfully argue that we must separate the genuine writings of the apostle from the writings attributed to him . . . This well-researched and highly readable account is recommended for all students of Paul [and] interested lay readers.""--Library Journal "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 A refreshing and heartening exculpation of a still routinely maligned figure of the first importance to culture and civilization. --Booklist (starred review) In this scholarly and engaging account . . .
