Who was Paul of Tarsus? Radical visionary of a new age? Gender-liberating progressive? Great defender of orthodoxy? In Remembering Paul, Benjamin L. White offers a critique of early Christian claims about the "real" Paul in the second century C.E. - a period in which apostolic memory washighly contested - and sets these ancient contests alongside their modern counterpart: attempts to rescue the "historical" Paul from his "canonical" entrapments.

Editorial Reviews

"an engaging and wide-ranging work... a bold and ambitious book, and its author is not reticent in making sweeping claims about what he seeks to do. Thus, for example, he sets out not only to shed new light on how Paul was portrayed in certain second-century contexts, but also to begin tore-orientate the whole field of Pauline studies, reminding all interpreters of Paul of their own social and historical location, and doing for the 'remembered Paul' what others have done for the 'remembered Jesus'... I certainly learned from this book and I am glad to commend it to others." --Andrew Gregory, University of Oxford
