He is the one that made me lose faith in TSCC. I liked his book " why Christianity must change or die" . I liked his book "biblical literalism: a gentile heresy" and his most recent is my favorite " unbelievable: why ancient creeds can't produce a living faith today.

I havent read all of his books, but I dont remwmber that although he may have raised the possibility. An unmarried Jewish man in his thirties in that time and place could have been gay-or not. It is a possibility.

No, but I've read some by this guy:
