In response to A N Wilson's thesis that Paul founded Christianity, Tom Wright presents a concise, compelling account of Paul's actual contribution.

This is a riposte to A.N. Wilson's book, Paul - The Mind of the Apostle, which posited that Paul of Tarsus, not Jesus of Nazareth, was the founder of Christianity. The book aims to show how Wilson's arguments cover ground already well covered by biblical historians, and that these arguments fail to take account of the evidence which shows that while Paul's achievement was indeed to make Christianity available beyond the bounds of its original Jewish context, this did not involve re-inventing Jesus in the process.
