The second in John Shuck's Religion For Life series on how to read the Bible is now available. The featured scholar is the much published former Catholic priest John Dominic Crossan. Some real insights to be had, even if you have a different take on the historical Jesus (Crossan is no fan of the "apocalyptic prophet" view). Is Jesus the rider on the Palm Sunday peace donkey of the gospels, or the blood-spattered war horse of Revelation? Did Jesus change his mind about violence, or did Christianity change its Jesus? And what does Genesis have to do with the Neolithic Revolution?
