by Larry Hurtado

My personality likes to take it all in and try to learn a little something about lots of things. And, as that plays out, I also tend to get bored with subjects and want to move on quickly to the next idea that’s out there to be explored.

One of the subjects, though, that I never tire of is early Christian history. Anything around the first and early second century holds my interest, and I can even tolerate a lot of repeat information to glean out those unique factoids and perspectives different writers might offer.

I picked this up after a glowing recommendation in one of the conversations on the Bible Project podcast. Based on what I named, I was a little surprised that I wasn’t familiar with Larry Hurtado. I am now, and I’m sure more of his writing will make it’s way through my reading list.
