Editorial Reviews

Episcopal Bishop Emeritus of Newark, New Jersey - John Shelby Spong
A magnificent book! The authors, four Jesus Seminar Fellows, combine their brilliant scholarship with a clear and readable prose to present Paul s thought to our day with a vibrant freshness. In the process they free Paul from the creeds and doctrines that have for so long distorted his message. This is the best book on Paul I have ever read.
