Bishop P directed me to CBC's The Current this morning where they discussed a booked that claims the crucifixion was an elaborate hoax. I listened for about 3 minutues before I turned it off and decided to finish my sermon instead.
I've encountered these folks before. John Shelby Spong and Tom Harpur being chief among them. Agenda-driven ideologues offering "masterworks of paranoid pseudohistory." They are to the left, what the nutty, "Intelligent Design" folks are to the right.
But Laura Miller critiques the book better than I ever could.
Thanks, also, to the Green Knight.
