St Paul

by Cush on Feb 27, 2009

I bought the book by an author I had read before, to know more about St. Paul. Was so pleased that I recommended it for use in a Bible Study group that was forming. All 10 members and the priest are glad to have chosen it. Very readable and eye opening. Has made for good discussion.


A new way of Reading Paul

by LayDominican on Nov 13, 2008

"What Paul Meant" by Garry Wills, is a real eye opener. To start of with, the book explains to the reader that many words that were first written in Hebrew, did not always translate well into Greek. And when the Greek verison of what St.Paul wrote is translated into Latin, the meaning of the Hebrew of Paul is lost. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read Paul, and feel confused or think that Paul is contradicting himself like in Romans. It is an easy read and Mr. Wills speaks to the reader in an easy to understand way. Out of 5 stars I would give "What Paul Meant" 4 stars. A must for everyone who wants to get to the real meaning of Paul's teachings.
