I am in Toronto, a guest of Cruxifusion where I am speaking on the topic "Cruciformity - Life as a Gospel Rabbi." I intend to post some notes from my talk in the next few days. In the meantime, I am posting links to the books that I will be mentioning so that they are easily accessible for those at the gathering who want to follow up on them ...
