Stephen Mansfield will be speaking about his new book,
About his book, Mansfield says: “During my college years, I
heard some brilliant professors talk about the details of the
crucifixion of Jesus. One spoke of how Jewish Law played a role.
Another spoke of the evolution of torture in the Roman Empire. I
was both moved and fascinated. Over the years, I read what I could
find on the subject and hoped one day to retell what I had learned
in a manner that was consistent with scripture but also
incorporated Roman and Jewish writings on the subject. That
opportunity has come and I’m thrilled with the result. There is a
great deal of emphasis on Jesus today and from every philosophical
perspective. I trust my book is a creative, scholarly contribution
to this grand discussion.”
