Special Delivery! Bauckham's Jesus and the Eyewitnesses

When I got to the bookstore today, I discovered a package from Eerdmans containing, among other things, my special order copy of Richard Bauckham's incendiary Jesus and the Eyewitnesses. As many of you are surely aware, this book has generated a tremendous amount of online and offline chatter in just a few short months. That fact alone would normally be enough to pique my interest, but I've also discovered that Prof. Adela Collins (one of my favorite professors at Yale) is presenting her own review of the book as part of a panel at the upcoming SBL meeting. I'm planning to start reading tonight... it's a good thing that I don't have class tomorrow. ;-)
