Richard Bauckham and Larry Hurtado Endorse “How God Became Jesus”

I was very pleased to hear that How God Became Jesus received endorsements from Richard Bauckham and Larry Hurtado, which is kinda cool to the max. Too late to go on the dust cover, but definitely going into the publicity materials.

“This is a helpful collection of essays by first-rate scholars abreast of the latest research. Anyone who wants a reliable historical account of how early Christians came to see Jesus as God should read this book.”
—Richard Bauckham, Emeritus Professor of New Testament, University of St Andrews, UK

“This set of studies comprises a readable and lively response to Ehrman’s book on how Jesus came to be regarded as in some sense divine. Collectively, they identify controversial issues and offer cogently put alternative views that deserve to be noted and that show that the scholarly discussion remains in play.”
—Larry Hurtado, Emeritus Professor of New Testament Language, Literature & Theology, University of Edinburgh, UK

Don’t forget that HGBJ releases tomorrow and goes live on Amazon.com for purchase.

    “Michael Bird steps up to the plate”. US baseball euphemism we have.

    Means we’re proud of you and thankful, too. Because you and your cohorts stepped up to the plate and accepted the challenge for The entire Body of Christ when the theological “chips were down”.

    Another US euphemism for the 2 big endorsements:

    “Michael Bird is stepping in high cotton”.

    Oh, I already bought the book. I know I’ll love it.
