Book for Sale (or trade)

At present, I own two copies of David Fiensy's masterful work Jesus the Galilean (the first copy was used for a book review that will be published next year; the second copy is untouched). Gorgias Press has the book priced at $89. However, they are currently running a pretty good sale (%40 off) on their books, which would bring this tome to just over $53. I will take an extra $5 off which means that I am willing to sell this book for $48 (that includes s&h) or to trade this work with someone. If you're interested, please leave a comment. By the way, this book is great and is very illuminating! Fiensy, one of my old profs is top-notch! Here is the info. and abstract for the work:

Who was Jesus, really? That question has been debated by academics for the last two centuries, and contributions to this important issue in the history of Christianity are still making an impact on public opinion. Jesus the Galilean takes soundings in the life of the historical Jesus based on four readings from the Gospel of Mark (6:1-4; 10:17-22; 7:1-23; and 11:15-17) which represent some of the most controversial issues in the current scholarly discussion about the historical Jesus. Using such categorizations as “Jesus and Culture” in uncovering the background of the New Testament, “Jesus in Galilee” based on archaeological studies, “Jesus and Community” – an exploration of the Dead Sea Scrolls and their issues with wealth, “Jesus and Purity” from the Jewish oral torah in the Mishnah, and “Jesus and the Temple” considering the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, this book explores what can be known about the historical Jesus in the historic Galilee. This handy book may also usefully serve as an introduction for students on the many resources available to reconstruct the life of Christianity’s founder.

David A. Fiensy received a Ph.D. in New Testament and Second Temple Judaism from Duke University. He is professor of New Testament at Kentucky Christian University.


  1. I'll be your huckleberry...

    "40 Days of Purpose"

    ...straight up.

  2. scott,

    you're alive! and, you're still hilarious. 40 Days of Purpose? My huckleberry? More like dingleberry!

    deal is "or best offer" not "or worst offer". besides, someone has already given me that warren book for free.

  3. Let me get through Christmas.

    If you still have this book at the end of January I will take it off of your hands then.

    I recently purchased Logos Gold, so no buying for a bit or the sheriff will murder me!

  4. Logos Gold, huh? Go boy! There's a great chance that I'll still have the book after Christmas. So, are you back or what?

  5. I won't be back until next year... I experienced some serious "blogistential angst" to say the least.

    I do have some good ideas though, and when I re-launch it will be under some more serious "for good" guidings. Got tired of some people using my material to argue things I never intended.

    Anyways, we'll talk in Jan. about the book if you still have it.

  6. Scott,

    Glad to hear you're coming back soon. Sorry to hear about the misuse of your materials. Anyways, looking forward to conversing more. Yeah, we'll talk about the book in Jan.
