In What Saint Paul Really Said, N.T. Wright—a world authority on the life and letters of Paul—leads readers through the current scholarly discussion of Paul and gives a concise account of the actual contribution Paul made to the birth of Christianity. Wright offers a critique of the argument that claims that it was Paul who founded Christianity and shows clearly that Paul was not "the founder of Christianity" but was the faithful witness and herald of Jesus of Nazareth, the Jewish Messiah and the risen Lord of the Christian faith.
-- Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"An excellent book on the major issues of the interpretation of Paul in earliest Christianity."
"Manages to situate Paul within Judaism and at the same time to bring out what is new and fresh about Pauline Christianity. Wright's respect for the biblical text, knowledge of modern scholarship, theological imagination, pastoral concern, and ability to communicate make this an excellent guide to Paul and his theology."
-- Theology Today
"Crisply argued and passionately written, this volume will provoke the reader to return to Paul's letters with fresh insights and a host of new questions."

Is a good approach to the life of Saulo\Paul of Tarso, from the Christian point of view. There are others who has different view. All are positive if you read different authors about PAUL OF TARSO.
