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.

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.
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.
