Book Notice: Secret Scriptures Revealed (Tony Burke)

A few days ago I received in my campus inbox, Tony Burke’s latest book, Secret Scripture Revealed: A New Introduction to the Christian Apocrypha (Eerdmans, 2013; published by SPCK in the UK). I have now had a chance to read through the book and I think it’s a very useful resource for students and others needing an introduction to the Christian apocyphal literature. This book could not have come at a better time! I am starting a class on Jesus and the Gospels in two days (yes, our semester begins that early) and I always have a section on the non-canonical Jesus traditions. I will be using Burke’s book to start some conversations later in the semester. (Thanks to the good people at Eerdmans for sending this book along!)
