Summary:
The authors show how the apostle was slowly but steadily "deradicalized" to fit Roman social norms in regards to slavery, patriarchy, and patronage. In truth, Paul was an appealing apostle of Jesus whose vision of life "in Christ"--One of his favored phrases--is remarkably faithful to the message of Jesus himself.
