The Company You Keep…

burn-at-stakeFrom the same quality publishing house that brought you A Case for Character: Toward a Lutheran Virtue Ethic comes a new book about the origins of Christianity. According to a review (I will not be purchasing this one, so I must rely on the review) Iesus Deus: The Early Christian Depiction of Jesus as a Mediterranean God puts forth the thesis that “Christians constructed a divine Jesus with traits specific to deities in Greco-Roman culture.” (HT: BAR)

Well, with fine titles like that one (and the doctrinal review process at CPH stacked against such blatant Methodism as one finds in CFC), I can see why professors at LCMS seminaries would have wanted to get their doctoral thesis published by Augsburg Fortress.

I would add something here about the company you keep, but you already got that from the headline.

Also, I will not be linking to either of the offending books, or the publishing house that is unnecessarily cutting down trees to produce them.

      Haven’t watched it. 2KR is Methodism with a Lutheran veneer. But as for this particular video, I don’t know.
