Colloquium Announcement: Maurice Casey’s ‘Jesus of Nazareth’

Not necessarily the actual cover

On the 11th of October and running through the 18th of the month the Biblical Studies List will host Prof. Maurice Casey who will be discussing with us his very soon to be published volume Jesus of Nazareth: An Independent Historian’s Account of His Life and Teachings. The official publication date is 30th September in the UK, and 30th December in the States (to allow time for shipping from the UK to the US). But they will have advance copies for sale at the booth at SBL.

In the meantime, I’ve been granted permission to excerpt segments of the volume and they will be posted on the Discussion List and blogged here as well in what I’m calling a ‘Different Kind of (P)review: Segments and Slices’.

If you’d like to discuss the excerpts (which will doubtless lead to many interesting questions) just sign up to take part.

We’re exceedingly pleased that Prof. Casey will be our guest and we know the discussion will be lively!

    James will of naturally get a birthday present in addition to a copy of the book, but it’s Maurice’s birthday on the 18th so I had better organise a party.

    Now I feel so honored to have those two great events coincide with my birthday.
    Thanks to you, I now have two more reasons why I need to really thank the Lord for that date. 😉
