St. Paul Versus St. Peter: A Tale of Two Missions

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 1995 - Religion - 196 pages

Most Christians believe that there was essentially only one early church which was later imperiled by false teachings. The New Testament was the developing statement of this early church, and from it grew the whole structure of Christian belief. In this remarkable book, Michael Goulder sets out to disprove this commonly held theory.
