Excellent book on Christianity
The questions he addresses are certainly very interesting and challenging. Little is known about the earliest years of Christianity: the 30s and 40s. Once we reach the 50s we have the letters of Paul, but what was happening before that time? There are no directly relevant documents for those early years; hence Crossan's 'interdisciplinary' approach, including a consideration of the reliability of oral testimony. And some fairly revolutionary ideas emerge; revolutionary, that is, from a conventional Christian standpoint. So we need to keep in mind that Crossan is no atheist or agnostic; he is, in fact, an Irish Roman Catholic, though certainly an unusual one.
