5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Analysis Calling For A Major Re-formation, December 29, 2007
This review is from: Jesus Was Not a Trinitarian (Paperback)
Anthony Buzzard has provided a thorough presentation that escapes the paralyzing bondage of the 4th and following centuries' faux-orthodox interpretations of Jesus the Christ. This book exposes the intellectual distortions and rut that has entombed Christology for centuries, because such scholarly honesty would probably have cost "traditional" theologians their jobs, even their lives. Readers are provided with a Jesus truly grounded in the New Testament. In the current post-Christian period, Buzzard's candor may well assist with a resurrection of a genuinely orthodox Christianity, if there is ever to be one. In my roles as a former philosophy professor and retired Episcopal cathedral canon, I heartily recommend "Jesus Was Not A Trinitarian."

My fellow Episcopalian, Fr Nolan, confirms my long-standing sense that Episcopal priests often receive really weak theological training. If he's persuaded by Sir Anthony's writings, he learned very little about patristic Christology (and Trinitarianism) in his seminary and graduate school days. The same could be said about his knowledge of New Testament Christology. My Amazon review of (and added comment on) Sir Anthony's earlier book, THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY, CHRISTIANITY'S SELF-INFLICTED WOUND, attempts to point out a better way to go, as do my two Amazon reviews of Richard E. Rubenstein's WHEN JESUS BECAME GOD. My current book project will some day provide a much fuller response. Stay tuned!

Using a book review to promote yourself is really shallow.

Shallow, Barbara? If my remarks annoy you, can't you find a better word than this?

Okay, how about 'lacking intellectual depth'? Cursory? Silly? Unimaginative? Superficial? Trite?
