Publisher's Summary

St. Paul is known throughout the world as the first Christian writer, authoring fourteen of the twenty-seven books in the New Testament. But as Karen Armstrong demonstrates in St. Paul: The Apostle We Love to Hate, he also exerted a more significant influence on the spread of Christianity throughout the world than any other figure in history. It was Paul who established the first Christian churches in Europe and Asia in the first century, Paul who transformed a minor sect into the largest religion produced by Western civilization, and Paul who advanced the revolutionary idea that Christ could serve as a model for the possibility of transcendence. While we know little about some aspects of the life of St. Paul - his upbringing, the details of his death - his dramatic vision of God on the road to Damascus is one of the most powerful stories in the history of Christianity, and the life that followed forever changed the course of history.

    "Admirably researched and told"

    Any book by Karen Armstrong opens up new perspectives for me. This is no exception. One cannot view Paul in the same way or, I think, not be filled eith compassion after hearing this history and narrative .

    I loved every minute of ms armstrong ' s presentation. it made the story of Paul
    come alive and I really got a sense of the culture and the struggles of the people. ironically, we human beings have not changed a bit from Paul's time.
