St. Paul is known throughout the world as the first
Christian writer, authoring fourteen of the twenty-seven
books in the New Testament. But as Karen Armstrong
demonstrates in St. Paul: The Apostle We Love to Hate, he
also exerted a more significant influence on the spread of
Christianity throughout the world than any other figure in
It was Paul who established the first Christian churches in
Europe and Asia in the first century, Paul who transformed a
minor sect into the largest religion produced by Western
civilization, and Paul who advanced the revolutionary idea
that Christ could serve as a model for the possibility of
transcendence. While we know little about some aspects of
the life of St. Paulâ€”his upbringing, the details of his
deathâ€”his 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.
