Book Club

Come join us for some interesting discussions on January 19, 2014 at the Secular Hub at 2:00 pm.  Our topics of discussion will include the following books: 

Non-fiction


Proving History:  Bayes’s Theorem and the Quest for the Historical Jesus by Richard C. Carrier a book describing how Bayes’s theorem should be used in historical methods.  By way of illustration Dr. Carrier applies these methods to the historicity of Jesus.  The most difficult math to follow in the book is at a sixth grade level.

    God willing the DVRs will work and I might yield to my temptation to hear in more detail how there is or isn't historical documentation of Jesus -- apart from the only record I'm aware being Josephus. Curious if this book examines how complete were the records / reports kept by Pontius Pilot to be sent back to Rome and did they the execution of prisoners?
