RE: [XTalk] BOC discussion group?
- Hi! Folks,
I would like to be a part of this group. If someone could nail down the URL for joining
and the beginning timeframe, as soon as possible, I would be more than happy to announce
it on my list and several others are involved with. I think several folks would be willing
to join in.
Will we use Sukie Curtis's guide as a formal "workbook"?( See informational post below.)
Talk to you later, Howard ~&~
Any questions about the Historical Jesus?
Kindly overlook contextual errors, I use speech recognition software.
I've been a silent participant for several months but am briefly coming out of hiding to
mention that, with the help of Gail Dawson, also of the august group, I will very soon
have available copies of a study guide to accompany Crossan's _The Birth of
Christianity_. It consists of summaries of his material (some who have used it say it
helped keep them on track, esp. in the more complicated material) and questions for
reflection and discussion, aimed particularly toward (but hopefull not exclusively toward)
church discussion groups, in that many of the questions reflect the interaction of
Crossan's proposals with "traditional" Christian teaching. A special feature of the guide
includes questions from several real-life book study groups to Crossan and his responses
back, which took place by email in a project I set up last fall. The whole thing is 66
pages long, three-hole punched and shrink-wrapped, for a bargain price of $6 per copy plus
1.75 for shipping.
If you're interested, I'm at sbcurtis@... or if you're ready to send your money
(!), you may do so at:
