2015 – Starting the Blog Again

I always loved blogging, namely on religious topics.

Lately I am reading a tonne of stuff on early Christian history and Judaism – much of how it impacted (and was ususrped) Christianity.

I think I’ll start writing blogs on the key stuff I read – from the books I am reading.

Plans are to write a book on the formation of Christianity and how it moved away from Judaism – so far that it is practically impossible to tell Judaism was where this branch broke off from.

I’ll examine that over 2015.

  1. Glad to see you back blogging. I’m pretty much on and off myself anymore. I wanted to recommend an old book, if you can find it anywhere. Finkelsteins “The Pharisees: The Sociological Background of Their Faith”. It was written in the 40’s I think, but is one of the most interesting books I have ever read on the Pharisees.

    • Thanks I will purchase it since you haven’t recommended one thing that wasn’t helpful so far

      As you can see I’m on the same topic but this time with way more research

    • Wow he has quite a few good ones

      The Pharisees is a 2 part series – just over 100.00

      Also has a Jewish encyclopedia

      And an ancient Jewish history that looks interesting

  2. Sorry, I dropped off the blogging world again for awhile. As far as the book recommendation goes, fortunately I was able to pick up the 2 volumes from synagogue. Someone donated them and no one else seemed to be interested in them so I got them for free. Just the right price! Another book that has a good amount of Jewish history tied in is “Jewish Worship” by Abraham Millgram but I see it is also expensive on Amazon. I picked this one up used for a few bucks. My copy is pretty beat but who cares for the price? I’ve read it quite a few times now. I think this book does a good job explaining how Judaism developed and survived in spite of conversion efforts; the answers we came up with to life’s questions along the way.
