New today from the Century:

  • James McGrath on the world of Jesus mythicism: "Scholars disagree about how Jesus understood his life and his mission.
    Countless labels have been applied to him. But everyone agrees that he existed,
    right?"
  • Matthew Avery Sutton reviews Randall Stephens and Karl Giberson, who "seek to explain how the academic-lay divide has grown so wide among evangelicals." (subscription required)
  • Mark Labberton blogs the lectionary: "Knowing and using our
    talents lies near to the core of our common life together. It's not because
    performance is the point, but because our gifts are for lives of
    fruitfulness--not for being cowed by fear."
  • Steve Woolley would love to tell the story, but he doesn't know it.
