Larry Hurtado, Destroyer of the Gods, September 29 – October 5

Why was Christianity so odd in its time and how did it change the way we think of religion today?

Larry Hurtado is Professor Emeritus of New Testament Language, Literature,and Theology in the school of divinity at the University of Edinburgh.   His research has focused on the origins and development of what he calls “devotion to Jesus” in earliest Christianity. He is an author of numerous books and an authority on the Gospels (esp. Gospel of Mark), the Apostle Paul, Early Christology, the Jewish Background of the New Testament, and New Testament Textual Criticism.

We discuss his latest book is Destroyer of the Gods: Early Christian Distinctiveness in the Roman World.
