More About the Author

Robert J. Hutchinson is an award-winning writer and author who studied philosophy as an undergraduate, moved to Israel to learn Hebrew, and earned a graduate degree in New Testament.

Hutchinson's most recent book is Searching for Jesus: New Discoveries in the Quest for Jesus of Nazareth -- an overview of recent archaeological finds and new developments in Biblical scholarship that are calling into question much of what skeptical scholars have assumed and asserted about Jesus over the past two centuries.

Hutchinson is also the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible, which demonstrates how the ideas embedded in the ancient Biblical texts helped give rise to modern science, the development of democratic government, and the global recognition of human rights; When in Rome: A Journal of Life in Vatican City, a Book of the Month Club and Quality Paperback Book Club Selection about life in the Vatican; and The Book of Vices: A Collection of Classic Immoral Tales, a parody of William Bennett's bestseller, The Book of Virtues.

An avid traveler, Hutchinson was once the managing editor of Hawaii Magazine and the Hawaii Bureau Chief for The Hollywood Reporter. He blogs regularly at
