Easter 2010 sees the publication of The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ by Philip Pullman, in which Pullman argues that while Jesus was a great moral teacher, St Paul corrupted his message by 'imagining'^his divinity.
This is not a new argument by any means; a number of people over the years have labelled Paul 'the founder of Christianity'. But it constitutes a very serious attack on Christianity and its fundamental beliefs - and Pullman's high profile championing of this stance brings the debate into the public arena once more.


In this short accessible book, a respected scholar on the Gospels and on St Paul argues that Paul did not in fact invent Christianity or change the religion of Jesus, but that he actually got Jesus right.

Was St Paul a distorter of Jesus' original message, or a faithful follower? Over recent years some critics of Christianity have claimed that while Jesus was a gifted teacher and a man of unparalleled kindness, St Paul was the true founder of Christianity, which he based on a delusional mistake: the idea that Jesus was God. This theory has found its way into academia, churches, newspapers, and, most recently, novels. In Did St Paul Get Jesus Right? respected New Testament scholar David Wenham looks at the historical evidence for such claims. Comparing the life and message of Jesus with the writings of St Paul, he offers a thoughtful exploration of their relationship, concluding that far from imagining Christianity, Paul was the messenger of an inherited faith.
