Karen Armstrong provided a nuanced view of Paul which required me to rethink my negative reaction to the information received (most of my life) which portrayed Paul as a 'woman hater'. I had trouble reconciling that view of him with the various women who hosted the house churches and with the various books attributed to Paul which placed women in secondary roles. Current studies by Armstrong and others suggest that

Armstrong, Karen. St. Paul: The Saint We Love to Hate. New Harvest, 2015.
One of the many things I admire about Karen Armstrong is her willingness to change her mind. In 1983 she wrote that Paul was an antifeminist who destroyed much of early Christian theology. In this new book, she argues that more recent scholarship has shown that most of the things she objected to in Paul’s writings were actually interpolations by later writers attempting to make him less controversial in Greco-Roman eyes. She now paints Paul as a radical egalitarian, who, far from being an antifeminist, thanks women for their support of their religious communities. She shows him as man struggling to keep together far-flung congregations—always tempted to regard their local brand as superior to everyone else’s version of the movement. Armstrong is not announcing new archeological studies but synthesizing in the clearest way possible the latest scholarly thinking. Nobody does that better, especially not in 160 pages. ( )

Armstrong questions Paul's authorship of many of the letters attributed to him, and explains the situation behind the others. A great brief look at the career of the Apostle who met Jesus on the road to
Damascus. ( )
  LindaLeeJacobs | Feb 15, 2020 |
In this short book Armstrong makes a valiant attempt to redeem Paul from his reputation as a misogynist, and as one who advocated toeing the party line as far as government is concerned.
Her results are mixed. To dismiss nearly every verse that one finds objectionable is facile at best. The resulting picture of Paul as one who had to deal with both a hostile government and hostile factions within the early church, and who did so in a completely blameless manner, must err on the other side of the argument: in her view (at least as expressed here) Paul is so perfect as to be impossible to believe.

While I don't agree with the author's assessment of Paul the historical person, the author does a seemingly credible job of research and asserting her position. While I'm no fan of Paul's, this book is fairly interesting in its argument and conclusions. ( )

While Jerusalem was celebrated Passover c. 30 CE, Pontius Pilate, Roman governor of Judea, order the crucifixion of a peasant from the tiny hamlet of Nazareth in Galilee. (Introduction)
Luke's account of the descent on the Spirit on the Jewish festival of Pentecost may not be historically reliable but it certainly expresses the tumultuous character of the early Jesus movement.
