Jesus of Nazareth

The good folks at Backus Books have sent along for review a copy of a volume that will interest a number of persons. Namely, Jesus of Nazareth by John A. Broadus.  This volume was originally published in 1890 and republished in 2005.

Baptists may well be familiar with the name of Broadus (who served as the President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary back when it was an actual institution of higher learning) but others may not have heard of him.

And while the republication of such an old volume may strike some folk as odd, it certainly merits wider attention than a gentle, understanding but condescending smile would grant it.

I’ll review it in due course and post it here.
