New Bird Book
My newest book Are You the One Who is To Come? The Historical Jesus and the Messianic Question (Baker Academic) arrived in the post yesterday and it looks nice and schmicko. I love the smell of newly printed books! For bibliophiles, I think it'll be ready for shipping by September if not earlier. I should give due thanks to David deSilva, Craig Evans, and James Crossley for their generous endorsements and to Stan Porter who wrote a very nice foreword. And I can't forget to mention the good folks at Baker for bringing it through. But now comes the hard bit, praying that my new baby doesn't get bullied in the book reviews!
For those interested, other "Bird" books that should hopefully be out in time for SBL in Nawleans are:
The only problem is that these are the books that I'll be editing, proofing, or indexing over the summer (to be fair, my wife is the one indexing Col/Philm at the moment and enjoying it like root canal). But then again, it beats getting a summer job.
