Caption Contest for New Book

In this photo are my friends Con Campbell (TEDS) and Timothy Gombis (GRTS) in the Baker Bookstore reading How God Became Jesus. This calls for a caption contest.

Might even arrange a free copy for the best suggestion!

    “Well, the illustrations are helpful, but why does Mike spend so much time showing us how to do the Macarena?”

  • Nick

    “Untranslated Greek and Hebrew in the footnotes? I don’t remember anything I learned in seminary! How am I supposed to read this!? Let’s go check out the Joel Osteen section.”

  • Bex

    Oh wait, we thought this was Ehrman’s book.

  • Craig Beard

    How can Mike call this the “meat and potatoes” about Jesus without quoting either of us??

  • Brett

    Wait, so they are not going to talk about “in Christ” language? Why did I pick this up again?

  • William Martin

    It’s a shame that Bird is so cheap he won’t give us free copies of his book so we are stuck having to read it in the store.

  • Gupta Nijay

    Tim to Con: “How did Mike get them to put an advert for Evangelical Theology on every other page?”

  • JD

    I mean, I suppose it’s POSSIBLE that the disciples just started calling Jesus God for no reason…

  • Kim Fabricius

    As their limp arm-and-hand gestures suggest, Campbell and Gombis are unenthusiastic about Bird’s hot new manual on charismatic worship.

  • Peter McKeague

    But I can’t find any mention of the communicatio idiomatum!

  • Heath

    Bummed that there is not a picture anywhere in this book of Michael with no shirt and a machine gun!

  • Andrew

    Tim: “How Jesus became God/How God became Jesus, those sound about the same to me. Tell me Con, is there really a difference here or is this one of things like how Australian toilets go backwards?”

  • Jordan

    “Is your invisible coffee mug is hot as mine is?”

  • Michael Bird

    I declare the winner to be Bex, though Nijay was a close second!

      Thanks!
