Paul: Appalling or Appealing?

Home » News » Paul: Appalling?
AMC Borg paul 2

This Saturday 23 July between 2 and 4pm, we shall be seeing if we can agree who Paul was and is today. That's the Apostle Paul, he of the New Testament and writer of some, but seemingly not all, 'Letters from Paul to the church at...' Our book club members will have been mulling over this work by James Crossan and Marcus Borg, 'The First Paul: Reclaiming the Radical Visionary Behind the Church's Conservative Icon'. If you would like to listen to or join in our musings, we would love to see you. We will be meeting in the coffee bar through the glass doors at the front of the church, tea, coffee and biscuits at the ready.
