In Preparation for My Course on Reinventing Jesus
… I just reread Bill Arnal’s The Symbolic Jesus. I had forgotten how much I loved that book, and I suspect that it has influenced me more than I consciously knew.
Also, I just started Crossley’s Jesus in an Age of Terror. I’m only 11 pages in, but so far it is brilliant. Equinox is a damn fine press.
Given the recent talk about how Sheffield’s program might be closing, I can’t help but notice that he talks about academics being disciplined for having unpopular views. Was Crossley one of the ones who already left?
