This book is based on research on Paul and his life as founder and an architect of Christianity. While some have argued, from the period in which he lived up until today, that Paul was a lunatic who thought himself to be the chosen one with his God-given inspiration, some on the otehr hand have defended the view that he is one of the most important figures, if not the central figure, in the history of Christianity. 

Paul is one of the most controversial figures in the history of Christianity who is often viewed as a missionary, an original thinker, a prominent theologian, as well as a messenger and a prophet who preached the message of Christ. However, by others he is noted as a follower of Hellenism, a Gnostic or an individual from the traditions of secret societies, the one who went far beyond the teachings of historical Jesus.

Gunduz expounds the role of Paul in shaping Christianity and his relation to historical Jesus and argues that it is Paul who shaped the current Christocentrism perception of salvation, eschatology cosmology concepts of divine law and sovereignty and other alike thoughts, and hence deserves the name ''real architect of Christianity.'' Thus, historical Jesus is not the founder of Christianity. As Gunduz argues, contrary to current Christian belief, historical Jesus is an eschatological messenger, a believer of one-God and his sovereignty and a social reformist.
