Paul - I don't get him.

There is an interesting article about the Apostle Paul in today's Independent.

I'm not a big fan of the Apostle Paul of mainly two reasons: 1) Most churches base their theology on Paul's writings without understanding it, and 2) I don't understand Paul's writings. I don't think that I am intelligent enough to understand Paul and this is the reason I didn't carry on and do the MA when I was studying theology.

Anyway, there is a good book on Paul by NT Wright, the anglican Bishop of Durham: "What Saint Paul Really Said", which should be compulsive reading for anyone attempting to read Paul. NT Wright is also quoted in the Independents article, which can be read here.
