Jesus and His Death

Ben Myers may be a lucky blogger because he got a copy of Jesus Remembered, but my MOM is the coolest in the world, cause she got me a copy of Jesus and His Death by Scot McKnight! [For those who want a foretaste there is a brief snippet available here.]
I'm really looking forward to reading this book, given my interest in the discussion. I read his chapter on Jesus` Death in Scholarship which was most enlightening. So here's hoping to a great read!

Sean, ignore mean Ben. This sounds like an interesting book, especially as atonement theory is so much of a hot potato at the mo, especially in Britain after Steve Chalke's The Lost Message. I'd be interested to read your thoughts as you read through it.
All the best,
