This book, “Jesus as a Peasant Sage,” a look at the work of John Dominic Crossan, seems to be quite a monumental study by several contributors and authors, not all who agree with Crossan’s arguments. It is being released in Great Britain this month and in the United States in January of next year. Of, course, you can preorder at Amazon and if you can’t wait you can have it shipped across the pond.
John Dominic Crossan is of interest to those who study the Shroud of Turin because of his controversial theory, endorsed by Marcus Borg, that Jesus was not buried, but left on the cross.
From the publisher, T & T Clark, Ltd:
A look at the work of John Dominic Crossan, known for his work in interpreting Jesus using cross-cultural methods. This volume looks at the work of John Dominic Crossan. Crossan is known for his work in interpreting Jesus using cross-cultural methods. He understands Jesus to be a cynic-like sage who counter-culturally works for a ‘brokerless kingdom’ in which there is ‘open commensality’ among those who follow Jesus’ teachings. He is known for demonstrating the importance on incorporating the use of non-canonical sources in one’s reconstruction of Jesus.
It is expensive at about $110.00.
