Summary
The authors show how the apostle was slowly but steadily "deradicalized" to fit Roman social norms in regards to slavery, patriarchy, and patronage. In truth, Paul was an appealing apostle of Jesus whose vision of life "in Christ"--one of his favored phrases--is remarkably faithful to the message of Jesus himself
Summary
Challenges mainstream beliefs about the apostle Paul that credit him with supporting early church agendas on such issues as slavery, the subordination of women, and homosexuality
