Barrie speaks about The Lost Gospel:
Paul vs. James
Paul was the outsider who never met the historicalJesus. James was Jesus' brother who knew him throughout his life. James' community observed Jewish law; Paul's didn't. Their battle shaped the future of Christianity and so changed the world. The battle was fierce. For Paul, James as an agent of Satan. For James, Paul was the liar, a charge he had to refute in virtually all his letters.
Enter into the angry world of early Christianity.
