Help Needed With The Burial of Jesus

I was tempted to say “the reburial of Jesus” or “second Burial of Jesus” in the title of this post, but having recently discussed the Talpiot tomb and related topics, I feared that might result in misunderstandings. Even so, I hope you enjoy the double meaning of the title.

My book The Burial of Jesus: History and Faith is going to be published as an ebook by Patheos Press in a second, revised edition. They are looking for scholars to provide blurbs for the Amazon page. If you read the first edition and could provide a short blurb for publicity purposes, please let me know, or just contact Patheos Press directly.
