Birth of Christianity
John Dominic Crossan explores the lost years of earliest Christianity, the years immediately following Jesus' execution.
He establishes the contextual setting through a combination of literary, anthropological, historical and archaeological approaches. He challenges the assumptions about the role of Paul and the meaning of resurrection, and forges a new understanding of the birth of the Christian church.
Here is a vivid account of early Christianity's interaction with the world around it, and of the new traditions and communities established as Jesus' companions continued their movement after his death.

Okay, great book, but he sure gets defensive about his position vis a vis other NT scholars. Touchy! Read full review
