an intro to shmee

sean D is an odd guy.
After spending the first 18 years of his life wondering through southern Africa, he left for an island in the middle of the Pacific ocean to study theology, philosophy and biblical studies. It’s strange that this career path was taken, as he was never the academic type. Instead of studying at high-school, he found himself doing some serious partying and surfing. But, at the ripe old age of 16, he met Jesus – and that changed everything. Now, he spends his time reading books, hanging out at high-schools and universities telling the world how a Jewish prophet from Galilee transformed the world, and is still impacting this beautiful world with the gospel of Grace...
This blog is an attempt to aid him writing a thesis on Jesus and the Roman Empire. This is the initial stages of research and work and so you get to help [by adding comments and emails] make sense of the immense reading list and suggestions that flow from sean's thoughts and comments. Everything here is a work in progress and he's no scholar yet. But with a little help from friends and strangers, we might just get somewhere...
ciao, shmee

Looks like you've made a great start, friend.

From your semi-old friend in the island in the middle of the Pacific.
