Bauckham’s New Book on the Gospels

Jesus and the Eyewitnesses
Last October I had the privilege of hearing Richard Bauckham (a lecturer in the University of Saint Andrews) give a lecture on many of the subjects that will be dealt with in his forthcoming book, Jesus and the Eyewitnesses (I posted my notes from the lecture here). I had all but forgotten about the book, until Chris Tilling’s post reminded me of it. This will be a must-read book, whether or not it lives up to Chris’s expectation that it might be ‘the most important publication on the historical Jesus to be written in the last fifty years.’ Pre-order it now at a very reasonable price. Also keep an eye on Chris’s blog for the forthcoming interview with Bauckham.

While I am about it, I will also alert you all to another important recent publication by Richard Bauckham (Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Jon).
