HOW GOD BECAME JESUS: THE REAL ORIGINS OF BELIEF IN JESUS' DIVINE NATURE By Michael F. Bird, et al., Zondervan (March, 2014), is not a light read, but it may be an important one for anyone who has been troubled by books which attempt to “deconstruct” the divinity of Jesus. Usually, when books of that type are published, believers are left trying to counter their arguments in reviews that are rarely seen by the people who actually read the book in question. In this case, the publishers arranged to publish both How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee by Bart D. Ehrman, and the rebuttal by a number of Christian scholars which is the subject of this review. See our short review posted here.
