Review: James McGrath's The Burial of Jesus
Many Evangelical Christians today don't want to critically studying their faith, and are sometimes openly hostile to the idea. Jesus has changed their lives; whatever the experts may say about Jesus or the origins of Christianity is irrelevant. They have the Bible and need nothing else.
Such a mindset is harmful to the people who harbor it and to the entirety of Christianity. I mean, what sign do we send to potential converts when we stick our fingers in our ears and shake our heads anytime our faith is challenged? Problematic thinking like this needs to be addressed, and that's why I glad to see books like James McGrath's The Burial of Jesus: What Does History Have To With Faith? (BOJ).
