Additionally, painting Ehrman has someone who wags his finger while, incidentally, allowing ones polemical paper to include finger-wagging against Christians seems to me to be counter-productive. For those interested in owning this volume, I suppose it has one or two redeeming qualities that make it worth owning.
But Carrier makes sure to include the caveat that he disagrees with many of the claims made by the rest of the contributors of the volume—so the one of only two individuals in the lot Bob Price is the other who has credibility according to academic standards has essentially already buried the hatchet in most of the volume. Obviously, read it and judge for yourself whether his caveat is appropriate I think it is. But he is also wrong in some respects.
While ten people may have the same conclusion, it does not mean they all reached that conclusion the same way. Some may have reached the conclusion based on academic curiosity, but some may just have been curious and also ignorant , others may be conspiracists, others still educated laypeople who have an interest but no real academic discipline or proficiency with the languages.
Third, Doherty has some rather cleverly-written articles in this volume. But if you want to read Doherty— read him.
In conclusion, I was disappointed. This book represents the very thing you should never do, not even if you feel it is justified. This book lacked everything and what it had in abundance was unnecessary polemics. It was published through a house owned by or at least in part one of the coeditors, most of the articles would not make it into an academic publication e. This book actually makes me want to openly apologize to Bart Ehrman on behalf of the contributors—even though I do not count myself among them.
But these criticisms of mine, while they are harsh, can be corrected. This is the bright side. One need only write a paper and submit it to a journal. The goal should be to circulate criticisms of the book, respectfully written with valuable contributions to the institution, to the people who need it—scholars. This has been my biggest complaint about mythicists: they demand to be taken seriously but refuse to do what is necessary to earn that respect.
Alas, Bart Ehrman and the Quest of the Historical Jesus of Nazareth is just the most recent example of such a blatant refusal. Murdock, and she is basically the Giorgio Tsoukalos of religious studies. That she somehow keeps being given a level of recognition in the field of Jesus studies is, quite frankly, pretty damning of Jesus studies as a field wanting of respect.
There are hack frauds in other fields, yes, and there are scholars of religion which give her work the contempt it deserves, yes… but I never see, e. No one really ever mentions her in Biblical Studies except when they are being refuted.
Her books are not nearly that influential, precisely because they are terrible. Not sure what your meaning is in that regard. Regarding what the first comment said about D. I would honestly be surprised if D. Murdock was ever cited in such publications, even as an object of derision because her works are not even remotely germane to the field of inquiry.

Quite so! And that was my point; she is utterly ignored because she fails to live up to even the most modest of historical methodologies. What she writes is just wholly untrustworthy. He has now written a very negative review of the volume. The problem with treating Murdock as though she is even worth responding to, is that it gives people the wrong impression.
So it is with D. You are commenting using your WordPress.
