The first of the two podcasts is here

Yesterday I recorded two hours of debate with Bart Ehrman for Premier Christian Radio (London) about his book Jesus Before the Gospels (and related also to my Jesus and the Eyewitnesses). They will be broadcast in two installments next Saturday and the following Saturday, and will be available as podcasts.

In Malcolm Guite's new book, Waiting on the Word: A Poem a Day for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany (Norwich: Canterbury Press, 2015), he has selected a series of poems and written a few pages of comment on each. He has included the poem I wrote last Christmas ("Song of the Shepherds") and I feel honoured to have it placed among poems by Milton, Tennyson, Herbert etc., as well as a few contemporary poets.

I have just received my copies of this book that will be published very soon:
I (Still) Believe: Leading Bible Scholars Share Their Stories of Faith and Scholarship, edited by John Byron and Joel N. Lohr (Zondervan). It is a collection of eighteen autobiographical essays by biblical scholars who were asked to reflect on how their faith and their academic work have related. Because they appear in alphabetical order I come first! I haven't yet read many of the other chapters, but they look very interesting indeed - at least for people who have read any of these scholars' work.

Some visitors will know that this site has been unavailable since the middle of December 2014 and has only recently reappeared online. I am very grateful to Colin Bell, whose expertise has resurrected it for me. However, it could only be recovered in the state it was in some time before it disappeared. Getting it up to date again will take some time, mainly because I am currently so busy with other things. But I'm making a start on that.
