James McGrath is a liberal Christian who embraces science and is soteriologically inclusive.  He is one of my favorite kind of Christians.  His blog, Exploring Our Matrix, has delightful educational reading even for atheists.   Reading his blog inspired me to read his recent book.  Here are my posts which review and respond to his fine book.

  1. Is this title being released just in time for Easter? Or is the title referring to something altogether different . . .

  2. It is a 2008 book. It is about the historical evidence for the burial & resurrection.

  3. Baylor College, Indiana? It’s Butler University. Nevertheless, thanks for doing this!
