The Israeli paper, Haaretz, has an updated report on the trial of the alleged founder of the James Ossuary. Those who wish to keep up with the progress of the trial over its authenticity can read about it at: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/974483.html

Although this is April Fool's day, the blog for today is not for fools. It is a look at the two kinds of Christianity that are out in the Public Square today: Christianity and what I call Jesusanity. The latter I have discussed before in Dethroning Jesus.

I have come on board, using Parallels on a Mac, to be able to access the Logos Libronix System. I am still getting up to speed with this, but I also have found Galaxie Software's The Theological Journal Library CD (Volumes 1-10). With Libronix you can search years of journals for information. The collection is theologically quite conservative.

I am writing a lot now. Several individual articles are due between now and the end of the year. It has slowed down my blogging other than responding to comments. The first is an article on Discussing Christianity in a Non-Theocentric World. Here is a sample that discusses how we talk about the gospel in much preaching.

Last week Logos Bible Software announced the alpha release of the Mac version of their software. It is now available for download at http://www.macbiblesoftware.com/. Because this is an alpha release it's not recommended for downloading to your primary machine, and no support is provided, but for those who just simply can't wait and must be on the bleeding edge of technology, it's now available.

I spent this last week at the University of Michigan, speaking to the staff and students of a church on campus, as well as lecturing on Luke in an Introduction to New Testament class and meeting with faculty and graduate students in their religious studies program. Gabriele Boccaccini was my host for the meetings on campus. He is well known for his work in Second Temple Judaism.
