Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during July – September 2017
  1. As previously reported, I’d decided to down-prioritise my planned activities on this project for the time being, despite its intrinsic importance. There’s just no time for it if I want to make progress on my Thesis, Website and Bridge. However, now Bridge has been shelved, there’s a bit more time available.
  2. I planned only 1 hour / week for this quarter, but achieved more than double that.
  3. Consequently, I spent 30 hours on this project in 3Q17 (60 hours YTD, where by “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the academic year commenced in October 2016). That’s 232% of the diminutive planned effort (92% YTD). Overall, 4% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 2% YTD) – as against 2% planned (2% YTD).
  4. The highlight of the quarter was an unexpected email from Michael J. Alter. He’d picked up a stray comment I’d made on his "Alter (Michael J.) - The Resurrection: A Critical Inquiry". After some discussion on this topic, he asked me to comment on his forthcoming "Alter (Michael J.) - The Resurrection & Christian Apologetics: A Critical Inquiry Volume 2". I have until the end of November, so it is virtually impossible to do it justice on the “budget” I’ve allowed myself – even though I have increased it to 3 hours / week.
  5. I also read various papers associated with Aeon.
  6. Further details of activity in the last quarter are given below:-

Religion (Total Hours = 26.5)
  1. Religion - Reading / Writing (Total Hours = 26)
  2. Religion - General Research

Religion Background (Total Hours = 4)
  1. Religion Background - Admin
  2. Religion Background - Discussions (Total Hours = 3.5)

Plans for the Near Future
  1. Philosophy of Religion: Read "Antony (Louise M.) - Philosophers without Gods: Meditations on Atheism and the Secular Life".
  2. Resurrection:
  3. Background:
    • Read appropriate items from Aeon.
    • Attend the OBT Conference at St. John’s on Jesus in the Old Testament.

Summary of Progress to Date

I’ve hived off the history to a separate document7, which still requires a major update.
