    Helen Bond, Gerry Adams & Jesus

    Channel 4's website for their early 2009 series The Bible: A History still isn't telling us when the series will start. Meanwhile, over at The Bible and Interpretation blog, Helen Bond discusses her experiences on the series in her role as Gerry Adams' mentor during his trip to the Holy Land. She concludes:
    Gerry’s background helped to illuminate for me certain aspects of Jesus’ life in a way that discussions with academics often has not. I’m not advocating giving up reading scholarly work, but true diversity of participation in Jesus studies involves discussion with a far greater variety of perspectives than are currently heard.
    It's a fascinating piece and one I'd recommend reading even if you won't be able to watch the series.

    Thanks to Mark Goodacre for the highlighting this.
