Reading 3-6-6

I recently started reading though Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview, by William Lane Craig and J.P. Moreland.  Two professors out of Talbot School of Theology, who are also deeply involved in the scholarly Evangelical Philosophical Society.  I picked this book up a few years ago after some time with some friends who attend Talbot, and attending an E.T.S./E.P.S. meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.  I've been hoping to make it back to it before I turn 60, and I think it's found its time.  It's an excellent read so far, and not nearly as incomprehensible as philosophy books tend to be.
I'm still working through W.H.C. Frend's Rise of Christianity, also.  It's an interesting history, and I'm not sure that I agree with some of his perspectives on a few issues.  Notably, it would be interesting to see an analysis of primary literature of Christian Fathers where the Christian church is vying with the Jews as a new Israel.
