Over the last few years I have become quite a fan of Daniel Boyarin, a professor of Talmudic Culture and Rhetoric at UC Berkely. In fact, I wrote a review of Boyarin’s groundbreaking book, Border Lines, which was recently published in Kesher Journal.
Therefore I was very excited to hear that Boyarin’s most recent book, The Jewish Gospels, has just been released. In fact, I received my copy in the mail just this last week. After skimming through it, I feel it is one of the most accessible and important books on Yeshua, the nature of G-d, and the Gospels. Unlike most of his books, which are primarily written to a scholarly audience, The Jewish Gospels is written with a more educated lay-audience in mind.
