Extremely well-written, fascinating, sometimes hard to read.

How God Became Jesus ed. by Michael Bird

So this is a response to the Ehrman book. On the one hand, I very much like the idea of a specific engagement--too often in biblical scholarship, ideas are just ignored instead of refuted. On the other hand, with the exception of Evans' piece, the tone and quality of this book were seriously lacking.

I really enjoyed this autobiography.

I enjoyed listening to this on our trip. Depressing, but fascinating.
