Book Reviews
Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony, by Richard Bauckham is reviewed by John Nolland.
'Most biblical scholars consider that Gospel material was for decades transmitted by anonymous persons, in an uncontrolled way, before it reached written form... Here is a book that invites us to a long-overdue rethink of fundamental assumptions. And its case for the importance of eye-witness testimony for the early Church is very powerful indeed.'

The Hidden Tradition of the Kingdom of God, by Margaret Barker, is reviewed by Stephen Smalley. 'In this brilliant handling of the secret Kingdom-Temple traditions, Dr Barker challenges every reader of the New Testament to look afresh at a familiar biblical theme.'

Solomon’s Temple: Myth and History, by William J. Hamblin and David Rolph Seely, is also reviewed by Stephen Smalley. 'Here is a lively and accessible ac-count of the Temple motif, sup-ported by superb and endlessly informative illustrations, and providing maps, a glossary, time line, select bibliography, and index.'

'Leaving church, I believe, is what church is for—leaving on a regular basis, leaving to see what God is up to in the world and joining God there, delivering all the riches of the institution to those who need them most, in full trust that God will never leave the church without all that it needs to live.'
