Special Program at Brooklyn Branch Library
- Saturday, April 11th 2015 at 2:00 pm
Join us for a most interesting special program on Sat., Apr. 11, 2 p.m., at the Brooklyn Branch Library (4800 Ridge Rd, Brooklyn). CFI—NE Ohio is proud to present noted author, philosopher, historian and secular activist Dr. Richard Carrier. He will be giving a presentation titled “The Historicity of Christ: Reason for Doubt?”
Here is the Amazon.com description of Carrier’s latest book: “The assumption that Jesus existed as a historical person has occasionally been questioned in the course of the last hundred years or so, but any doubts that have been raised have usually been put to rest in favor of imagining a blend of the historical, the mythical and the theological in the surviving records of Jesus. Carrier re-examines the whole question and finds compelling reasons to suspect the more daring assumption is correct.”
Carrier has a Ph.D. in the history of philosophy from Columbia University, and is a published philosopher and historian, specializing in contemporary philosophy of naturalism; Greco-Roman philosophy, science, and religion; and the origins of Christianity. He blogs regularly, lectures for community groups worldwide, and teaches courses online. He is the author of many books including Sense and Goodness without God, On the Historicity of Jesus, and Proving History, as well as chapters in several anthologies and articles in academic journals.
