Synopsis

San Pablo (Saul de Tarso) es uno de los personajes más controvertidos del cristianismo y ha sido el gran apóstol de la religión, escribiendo 14 de los 27 libros del Nuevo Testamento. Además ha difundido las enseñanzas cristianas con tanto éxito que logró convertir a una oscura secta minoritaria en la más grande religión de la civilización occidental. Muchos de sus escritos, analizados desde la modernidad, dan lugar a que San Pablo sea uno de los apóstoles más cuestionados por gente de toda ideología, acusándolo de misogino, esclavista y totalitario entre otras cosas. Ahora la autora intenta situar al personaje histórico en su debido contexto para poder ver con ecuanimidad su contribución a la historia.

While we know little about some aspects of the life of St. Paulhis upbringing, the details of his deathhis dramatic vision of God on the road to Damascus is one of the most powerful stories in the history of Christianity, and the life that followed forever changed the course of history.

Karen Armstrong was awarded the TED Prize and is currently working with TED. Her books have been translated into over forty five languages. Armstrong does an excellent job of highlighting the pivotal role Paul played in the development of the movement that would later become the Christian church, while also showing how his writings have been both ignored and co-opted by Christians.
