Abandoned. Yawn.

The author posits that Paul, not Jesus, was the founder of Christianity, and that Jesus was a Pharisee. He also presents evidence that he says suggests that Paul was NOT a Pharisee, did not engage in persecutions of Christians, and did not come from Tarsus. An interesting read, though not as original or radical as the author claims. ( )

Explores one alternative for the origin of what is now known as Christianity. Thought provoking and engaging. Well worth the read. ( )

A fascinating alternative view to the orthodox dogma and mythology around Paul and his role in Christianity. ( )

Wow. This one shakes my "reasonable doubt" into the slot of "Christianity = Evil-esque". I will countinue to pick and choose the aspects of this cult that I can admire and hope to forgive those who fall prey to the evil. Be with god. ( )
