Sutton, Skinner, Rosson reviews

My thanks to Benjamin Sutton, Chris Skinner, and Loren Rosson for their close readings of my book. You can read their reviews via the following links:

My thanks also to Mike Bird who provided the venue for Ben to publish his review. I understand that Brian LePort's full review is coming soon, but here are a couple teasers:

I should also thank Jennifer and Missi at 45th Parallel who have secured book reviews in Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, and The Chicago Tribune (all forthcoming).



  1. I hope you sell many copies and that many people are exposed to your work. If Reza and O'Reilly can do it, you should be able to as well. :)

  2. The book sounds excellent from the reviews. Do you deal with the claims of those who keep pushing the Talpiot tomb as evidence that Jesus had a wife and son in the book (I have not really followed the debate on this one except when it pops up on the "Bible & Interpretation" site)? Anyways, I look forward to reading it sometime and will overlook where you are wrong on Secret Mark ;)

    1. Mike, I don't touch the Talpiot tomb in the book. I didn't feel that I had anything original to say on the topic and my expertise is quite limited with matters related to archaeology.
