Synopses & Reviews
This is a brilliant synthesis of the Apostle Paul's thought and influence, written by a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and eminent scholar whom the Chicago Tribune calls a ?foremost Catholic intellectual.? All through history, Christians have debated Paul's influence on the church. Though revered, Paul has also been a stone on which many stumble. Apocryphal writings by Peter and James charge Paul, in the second century, with being a tool of Satan. In later centuries, Paul became a target of ridicule for writers such as Thomas Jefferson (?the first corruptor?), George Bernard Shaw (?a monstrous imposition?), and Nietzsche (?the Dysangelist?).
