About "What Saint Paul Really Said"

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

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.

A good introduction to Tom Wright's view of Paul
4 stars By S Wu, Jan 27 2013
This little book is a good introduction to Bishop Tom Wright's view of the apostle Paul, especially for those who want to understand Wright's theology firsthand. Wright's view on the gospel, justification and the righteousness of God can be found in this user-friendly book. It does not require a strong theological background to read, although some basic theological training would be helpful. This book will be profoundly helpful for those who want to gain a fresh understanding of Paul's theology. A good read!
