Books, Books, More Books

I've ordered some books on Biblical Criticism, two on the Old Testament and Archaeology and two on different aspects of the historicity of Jesus.

Robert M. Price - The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man: How Reliable is the Gospel Tradition? (2003)
Hyam Maccoby - The Mythmaker: Paul and the Invention of Christianity (1986)
Israel  Finkelstein & Neil Asher Silberman - The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts (2001)
Israel  Finkelstein & Neil Asher Silberman - David and Solomon: In Search of the Bible's Sacred Kings and the Roots of the Western Tradition (2006)

I won't have time to read them all in the near future, but come November, I'll be going on a huge reading spree. I have a fairly large list of books on my shelf that I haven't read yet.

Here is the list, all the ones that I haven't given a rating to yet are the ones that I haven't read yet.


  1. I'm currently reading a book on Hinduism and after that I'm plunging into The Extended Phenotype. What I find difficult to do is juggle the book reading as well as keeping up with blogs, magazines, and the newspaper.

    No rest for the wicked.

  2. I'm reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

  3. I'm currently reading Thus Spake Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche.
