Readers of the Jesus Blog will be familiar with Prof Crossley's contributions here on the blog but also his previous publications on the historical Jesus and early Christianity, including his most recent work, Jesus and the Chaos of History (Oxford University Press, 2015), which will receive a panel review at this year's British New Testament Conference. At St Mary's, Prof Crossley will also continue his important work on the Bible in contemporary culture and politics (see his Harnessing Chaos: The Bible in English Political Discourse since 1968 [Bloomsbury T&T Clark, 2014]) and organize conferences and research projects on this theme. As his is the most important voice in this discussion, he will add a key contemporary dimension to the social-scientific research already being conducted in CSSSB.
Congratulations to Prof Crossley and welcome to CSSSB at St Mary's! We'll have to plan a special celebration for the Jesus Blog family at SBL in November. . . .
