Read full description of the books:
Crossan is somewhat of a publicity hound, and he makes some pretty outrageous claims, almost entirely removing religion from Jesus' concerns in order to emphasize his program of social justice. I think it is absurd to deemphasize the role of God in Jesus' teachings, and it reflects Crossan's (semi-admitted) attempt to paint a Jesus that best serves his needs. However, I do think that Jesus' emphasis on social justice deserves a better look, and Crossan does so with powerful, symmetrical prose. Crossan should be taken with a grain of salt, but as long as you don't take everything he says as Gospel, he can be very insightful.
