Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during October - December 2017
  1. I had planned 3 hours / week for this quarter, but achieved about 50% more than that.
  2. Consequently, I spent 59 hours on this project in 4Q17 (59 hours YTD, where by “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the academic year commenced in October 2017). That’s 150% of the planned effort (150% YTD). Overall, 9% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 9% YTD) – as against 6% planned (6% YTD).
  3. The highlights of the quarter were:-
    • I continued with reviewing "Alter (Michael J.) - The Resurrection & Christian Apologetics: A Critical Inquiry Volume 2", though didn’t spend as much time as I’d hoped, because of the items below. I have been given an extended deadline of “Passover 2018”.
    • I attended the OBT conference “Jesus in the Old Testament”, and subsequently had protracted email and verbal discussions with Pete, Mike and Sylvia on the topic.
    • I reviewed the first 6 articles on Acts that Pete had produced for Search.
    • I also read a couple of papers associated with Aeon.
  4. Further details of activity in the last quarter are given below:-

Plans for the Near Future

In order to accommodate the work required to critique Michael J. Alter’s book, I’ve increased the planned effort again – to an hour a day (7 hours a week).
  1. Philosophy of Religion: Read "Antony (Louise M.) - Philosophers without Gods: Meditations on Atheism and the Secular Life".
  2. Resurrection:
    1. Do my best to review "Alter (Michael J.) - The Resurrection & Christian Apologetics: A Critical Inquiry Volume 2".
    2. Continue with "Alter (Michael J.) - The Resurrection: A Critical Inquiry".
    3. Read & research "Knohl (Israel) - Messiahs and Resurrection in 'The Gabriel Revelation'".
  3. Background: Read appropriate items from Aeon8.

Summary of Progress to Date

I’ve hived off the history to a separate document9, which still requires a major update.
