And the Winner Is….

The Earliest Christian Artifacts by Larry Hurtado, which has become the first book I read on Kindle.

While the chapters on the nomina sacra and the staurogram have some interest, it’s probably true that this is not  a book even for the general bible-interested public.  The topic of how much we can learn for early Christian history from ancient Christian manuscripts is not for anyone who has yet to get past NA27/UBS4. And if you don’t know what those are, well….

The one thing I did learn was that I have to read Lord Jesus Christ:Devotion to Jesus in Earliest Christianity, as Hurtado manages to footnote it almost constantly.
