According to the cover of our Book Club's choice for the 23 July meeting, "John Dominic Crossan and Marcus J. Borg--two of the world's top-selling Christian scholars and the bestselling authors...once again shake up the status quo. They argue that the message of the apostle Paul, considered by many to be the second most important figure in Christianity, has been domesticated by the church. Borg and Crossan turn the common perception of Paul on its head, revealing him as a radical follower of Jesus whose core message is still relevant today. They reveal a figure who, besides being neither anti-Semitic, anti-sex, nor misogynist, stresses social and political equality among Christians and between them and others."
Paul is described as "a still routinely maligned figure of the first importance to culture and civilization." Whose version of Paul will we believe in? We'll find out on July 23rd at 2pm. If you want to come and earwig or have your twopenn'orth you will be more than welcome.
The First Paul — reclaiming the radical visionary behind the conservative icon by Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan.
