Paul the Convert: The Apostolate and Apostasy of Saul the Pharisee

Although Paul's writings have been intensively studied by Christian theologians, they have been dismissed by Jewish scholars as the meditations of an antagonistic apostate who broke completely with his Jewish past. In this revisionist account of Paul's work, Alan Segal argues that Paul's life can be better understood by taking his Jewishness seriously, and that Jewish history can be illuminated greatly by examining Paul's writings. By reading Paul from the viewpoint of the religion he left behind, Segal sheds new light on the man who played a critical role in both Judaism and Christianity.   "Segal's new book challenges Jewish and Christian scholars alike to take a fresh look at this well-educated man."--The Washington Post Book World "Segal has written a blockbuster of a book about Paul that blazes a new trail. It not only gives new insights into Paul and his thought, but it establishes the writings of Paul as significant primary source material for the study of first-century Judaism.."--Hayim Goren Perelmuter, New Theology Review "A brilliantly argued book. . . . Paul is neither hero nor villain for Segal but a fascinating historical and religious character, from whom we can learn much about both Judaism and Christianity. . . . I found myself thoroughly sympathetic to Segal's portrayal of Paul. More than that, I found myself convinced."--J. Christian Wilson, The Christian Century "Paul the Convert is a stunning achievement. Segal brilliantly weaves together Jewish studies, New Testament scholarship, and contemporary social scientific theories of conversion into a richly textured and provocative book."--Lewis R. Rambo, Professor of Psychology and Religion, San Francisco Theological Seminary   "This is by far the best book about Paul I have ever read: it revolutionizes Pauline studies. . . . Segal has made Paul, and early Christianity, more understandable and therefore deserves the heartfelt thanks of all believers and unbelievers."--Giles Quispel, Vigiliae Christianae… (mer)

An excellent book on Paul, in other words: the best book on Paul I have read so far. Segal's depth of thought is unparallelled in the field of early Christianity. I don't believe I have a single other book with that much ++++-es in the margin.
Understandably Segal doesn't solve the Jesus-Paul problem as he accepts the traditional chronology of the origins of Christianity. ( )
