The Paulcast

The Paulcast, curated by Kurt Willems, is a new podcast devoted to the study of the most famous Apostle. He's been read to justify almost every agenda. People have reacted against such agendas and have let go of any hope that Paul is anything more than a misogynistic chauvinist. But who is Paul, really? What if Paul was revolutionary? What if Paul's letters were read in a world where his ideas were dangerous? What if Paul actually proclaimed world-changing news unlike anyone had before? In The Paulcast, Kurt Willems looks at issues pertaining to relevant scholarship, (radical) new perspectives on Paul, Jewish and Roman contexts for understanding his letters, important Pauline scholars and books, and Paul's ongoing relevance for regular folks today. In addition, Kurt will occasionally interview important voices from a variety of perspectives who will help us wrestle with the major questions that come out of the study of the historical Paul.

In this episode, I look at a book resource that I like quite a bit. There's some great stuff in this one. There's some stuff I disagree with. I'll tell you why I recommend it!

Here's the link to the book: The Real Paul: Recovering His Radical Challenge by Bernard Brandon Scott.

Also, this episode is the launch of the Paulcast Patreon online tip-jar (think Kickstarter for ongoing content creators). In order to make this show sustainable, I (Kurt) need like-minded folks to come alongside it as financial partners. For as little as $3 per month, you can make a tangible difference in this shows sustainability and quality!

Here, I hook you up with a direct download of The Paulcast's last minute book buying guide. Great books for gifts. Easy way to support the podcast.

If you want to buy a great gift for the armchair theologian in your life, especially if they are interested in Paul (who isn't?! hahah), then this guide will be your friend.I want to save you trouble. You don’t have to guess. If your significant other, friend, or family member loves to read up on theology, these books on Paul will most-likely be a “win!"

I've created this free resource for you, all I ask is that you share this link on social media to help spread the word to all the last minute shoppers out there!

In this free pdf guide, you will find three types of books:

Introduction Level Books on Paul

These are books that an average reader of Paul can pick up and enjoy. At the same time, because I picked them, you can be sure that they are loaded with insights and aren’t weak on content.

Accessible but More Academic 

Here’s the deal, the only thing separating the first two sections is that this category assumes some prior knowledge about the conversation about Paul. Still highly readable.

Scholarly Books

This is for the “heavy-hitter” armchair theologians in your life. These likely include more Greek words and are longer. If they are on my list, however, I guarantee that they aren’t dry and boring.
