“God and Empire: Jesus Against Rome, Then and Now,
by John Dominic Crossan. Finished reading 15 Sep 2008. 3/5 stars.
I enjoyed this book and Crossan is one of the most respected Biblical scholars around. He is a decent writer, extremely knowledgeable, and this book is full of Crossan's interesting perspectives. With all that said however, John Dominic Crossan remains the king of the non-sequitor, the loose end, the rabbit trail and the incoherent narrative. As much as I liked this book, I must confess that I have no idea what it was about.”
