Not sure whether I’ll have enough focus and patience to listen through all of Richard Carrier‘s On the Historicity of Jesus — the book is very long and very detailed, and does not make for an easy listen — but it is an amazing book, where the author demonstrates a clarity of thought, an attention to detail, and a willingness to follow a rigorous methodology that I have rarely seen in the humanities. It does feel, when he turns to math to suggest the odds for or against some historical fact or other that he pulls the numbers out of his hat, but other than that his arguments sound pretty convincing. My respect to the author.
