Jesus and His Death arrives

posted by xscot mcknight

I got my first copy of Jesus and His Death today from Baylor University Press. I thank its fine editorial folk, Carey Newman and Diane Smith, for their exceptional work. It is hard for me to compare editorial staffs, but there can’t be any that are more precise than Baylor’s.
I dedicated Jesus and His Death to four of my doctoral students from days now long past. I also have a blog site dedicated to it. I’ll be making remarks about reviews and the like over time at that site.

Excellent, I look forward to reading it. The blurb makes the book all the more intriguing. Who is Baylor’s UK distributor? Man, you are pumping out books lately, like, like, like, dare I say it: like Wright and Carson put together! Congrats again.

Mike,
Thanks. It is a bit embarrassing but some explanation will show that I’m not crazy. Jesus and his death took about 5 years; the anthology Jimmy Dunn and I did took about 3 years, and most of it was clerical; Embracing Grace is fairly short; the Story of the Christ is partially mine; so — it looks better than it is.
But, what has become clear to me is that the 11 years of teaching exegesis at TEDS gave me the foundation for most of what I do. And I really haven’t even written on Matthew and I had all that stuff there. Maybe someday.

The comparison with Stephen Neill in the review caught my eye — it must be quite a read.

I am not much into Synoptics (I got burned out during my Master’s), but this might make me change my mind a bit. Do you integrate John as well?
I ask because I am teaching a course in my church on John, and will be writing the section on the crucifixion in a few weeks, and this might be helpful.

Shelley,
It caught mine as well — nice to be mentioned in that crowd.
Ron,
I have stuff on John throughout, and then a section in the Conclusion on John’s understanding of Jesus’ death (367-371).

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
