In the Mail: @Eerdmansbooks Edition

It is always a nice surprise to get a package, especially when that package has Eerdmans on it. Yesterday I received Jesus Research New Methodologies and Perceptions: The Second Princeton-Prague Symposium on Jesus Research, and boy what a book this is! Clocking in at over 1,000 pages, this work is a who’s who of Jesus scholars. I look forward to digging in to this masterful book.

Well-known scholars discuss the current state of Jesus studies

This volume explores nearly every facet of contemporary Jesus research — from eyewitness criteria to the reliability of memory, from archaeology to psychobiography, from oral traditions to literary sources.

With contributions from forty internationally respected Jewish and Christian scholars, this distinguished collection of articles comes from the second (2007) Princeton-Prague Symposium on Jesus Research. It summarizes the significant advances in understanding Jesus that scholars have made in recent years through the development of diverse methodologies.

Readers already knowledgeable in the field will discover unique angles from well-known scholars, and all will be amply informed on the current state of Jesus studies.
