The recent monograph, Paul, Founder of Churches (2012), raises a range of theoretical and methodological questions about the deployment of comparison in the description and analysis of ancient Christian phenomena. This essay responds to a range of critical responses to this volume raised by participants in a 2011 panel during a Society of Biblical Literature Greco-Roman Religions session devoted to discussion of the book.
