Skipping Paul. John's the man

I've been ignoring the "Pauline year" and have gone right on to John. I'm currently reading Raymond Brown's Introduction to the Gospel of John. (Posthumous assist by Fr. Francis Moloney.)

I've usually found Paul more annoying than not - particularly his justification stuff. Borrrring.... if I wanted to listen to that all the time I'd hike down to some local Protestant dude. Truth be told I was glad he was shipwrecked all those times.

John's THE MAN. I'd love to know who wrote Hebrews too. Assuredly not that coat holder and tent maker.

I have no choice but to be familiar with Paul. I live in the southern US where Protestants are determined that if they can just quote the book of Romans enough, all Catholics will convert to their church. Sigh.

I just quote the letter of James at them.
