It's good to see Michel Bird, in his new blog Euangelion, commenting on Bill Arnals' new book, The Symbolic Jesus:
The Peril of Modernizing Jesus 3: The California Jesus strikes back!
There are some useful comments here and it reminds me that I really must get round to blogging my comnents on Arnal's book. I have read it through a couple of times and have made some extensive notes. When time allows, I would like to add my comments here.
