Paul: A Critical Life

 Paul: A Critical Life by Jerome Murphy-O’Connor O.P., Oxford Univ. Press, NY. 1996.
Paul might have felt right as home with us as we struggle with the issue of impeachment. There were those who truly felt that he needed to be discredited and removed from his ministry, because of his teaching that allowed Gentiles to become Christians without becoming Jews first. This book will immerse you in the details of this struggle, and give you a deepened appreciation for Paul’s courageous struggle with those who put their trust in the law over their trust in God’s unconditional love. Paul realizes that once we put our trust in the law, we inevitably loose Jesus the Christ. This is not an easy read, but one worth the time and effort.
