About the Author:

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

A careful reading of the New Testament shows great differences among the twelve men first called by Jesus to follow him. It also shows a considerable variety of outlook among Christians and among Christian congregations. One result is that there are four gospels, not one. If you read a letter by St. Paul, and then the letter of St. James, you might be forgiven for wondering whether the same religion is being described. In Paul's letter to the Galatians, he recalls a fierce argument with Peter: "I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong" (2:11). The religion of the New Testament was not uniform, and there is no good reason why Christianity today should be.
