Product description

Review

"Highly recommended to all interested in the historic roots of Christianity, whether or not they are believers. After Tabor, you will never read the NT in quite the same way." ---Library Journal Starred Review --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Paul and Jesus is overdue, and stands as one of the few books willing to push back assumptions...Digging beneath the acceptable, scholars like Tabor...break through assumptions--even the sacred ones--and give rise to new perspectives and stories."

-- "Huffington Post"

"A fresh, imaginative and insightful treatment of the original years of the Christian faith. It is not as we have been taught through the centuries. It is infinitely more complex and infinitely more exciting. James Tabor makes this clear."

-- "John Shelby Spong, author of Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World"

"In this compulsively readable exploration of the tangled world of Christian origins, Tabor vividly recreates the frenetic and fraught attempts by the earliest followers of Jesus to maintain his teachings and keep his memory alive...[He] compellingly illustrates the ways that Christianity is Paul and Paul is Christianity."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"The depth of [Tabor's] scholarship shows, but he also makes this an enjoyable read for those who want to know more about one of history's greatest mysteries."

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Highly recommended to all interested in the historic roots of Christianity, whether or not they are believers. After Tabor, you will never read the NT in quite the same way.-- "Library Journal Starred Review"
--This text refers to the audioCD edition.
