Bird and Crossley on the Air (Part One)
Unbelievable: Michael Bird and James Crossley have been interviewed about their book, How Did Christianity Begin?, which I earlier reviewed here. In this session they debate the question of Jesus' divinity in the gospels, and whether or not the resurrection best accounts for the birth of the Christian movement. Michael and James were equally eloquent and collegial (is this what's most "Unbelievable"?). Next week's second half will focus on Paul and more issues from the gospels.
