Paul and Jesus: How the Apostle Transformed Christianity Reviews

  • Sheila
    Dr. Tabor's four decades of research about Paul and his role in the development of Christianity has resulted in this, his latest well-researched work. The main portion of this book is divided into nine sections that logically present Tabor's research and his arguments: Paul not only departed vividl...

    Paul's an asshole. I'll leave it at that....

    I always appreciate readable books on Christianity or other religions for that matter, and James Tabor has delivered. Forty-five years of research and teaching give him some authority.

  • John Martindale
    Tabor's scholarship seemed to me extremely procrustean, it was hard to maintain my composure as I witnessed Tabor shamelessly stretching and hacking the data to snuggly fit his conjectures. As it suited him, he stated with absolute certainty who did or didn't write what and when it was written and a...
