I’m diligently working on the latest commentary in my little series (published by the Quartz Hill Publishing House), 1-2 Maccabees.  I have to confess that I am not a fan.  The ‘Taliban-esque’ nature of Judas’s actions are more than a little disconcerting- especially given the fact that he’s happy to kill fellow Jews who disagree with his interpretation of Torah.

Anyway, here’s the point:  I suspect I feel towards the Deuterocanonicals the same way secularists feel towards the Bible.  I guess my work on the Apocrypha is as close as I’ll ever get to understanding secularists.
