I’m starting to work through Ehrman’s How Jesus Became God and Bird’s (& co) How God Became Jesus. I’ve decided to review them side-by-side in bigger chunks. You can follow the entire series here. I’ll start by summarizing Ehrman, my thoughts, then the response by Bird. I’ve tried to keep this post short, and really appreciate comments!

I’m still not sure exactly how I’ll review How Jesus Became God. I have a few ideas: either a normal review, or a chapter-by-chapter thoughts in progress walk-through, or a back-and-forth review with its partner book, How God Became Jesus.
Is Christianity just about “going to heaven when you die”? If so, what exactly is the purpose of our life here? What does it matter what we do here and now if everything will be destroyed in the end? Ought Christians believe we will be better off when our bodies and the material world are done away with?
