What Paul Meant

What Paul Meant - Garry Wills This is an excellent book by Wills which could easily be kept on the shelf for easy reference. Wills has a conversational style to his writing, and he suffers no fools so he is interesting in what he has to say. He does a good job of laying out some of the basic teachings of Paul and dispelling mis-interpretations (e.g. Paul hates women). The gospel writer Luke takes a near continual beating from Wills because he distorts the history of Paul. Of course, Luke was not writing a historical document but a faith document, but that does not seem to matter to Wills. Still, an excellent quick read.
