Content good; writing style not.
This is a highly informative book that really brings to light information discovered in only the last half century in conjunction with what scholars have long known about the origins of Christianity. However, the author seems to repeat himself many times over, thereby making some of the details and support hard to find and remember among the repetition of the thesis. Scholastic endeavor of Christian theology is a passion of mine, but I found this book a bit cumbersome. As I noted above, although the content is excellent and worthy, this book stands a good chance going on a back stack in my library. The author ends with a "what do we do now?" note that really never made a point to me and was more like a synopsis of the entire book.

The author writed well. His handling of the subject is excellent but he is pressing his point of view. I tink is conclusions are a little radical. As a Christian I believe there is missing a failure to consider faith as being important. The early church was writing in the books now considered the canon their beliefs. They used the then current style of prose to tell their story. In many cases the exactness was secondary in their theology. In other words the Bible in it's present form is the belief of the author and not the true history.
