I received a gift card for books for Christmas - best gift ever. And though they won't arrive until after Christmas day, I'm still very excited.
What did I order, I hear you asking...
A Marginal Jew: Rethinking the Historical Jesus: The Roots of the Problem and the Person, Vol.1 by John P. Meier
The Apocalyptic Jesus: A Debate by Dale C. Allison
Jesus, Criteria, and the Demise of Authority - by Chris Kieth & Anthony Le Donne
The Burial of Jesus: History and Faith - by James McGrath
You can accuse me of being a nerd. I don't care. I've got some great books to read.
