How On Earth Did Jesus Become A God?: Historical Questions About The Earliest Devotion To Jesus by Larry W. Hurtado (Professor of New Testament Language, Literature, and Theology, University of Edinburgh, Scotland)is an informed and scholarly study on the perception of Jesus in the early Christian movement. Investigating the absurdly quick infatuation which so many Christians adopted after the death of Christ, and His inclusion into what became the Christian faith, How On Earth Did Jesus Become A God? delves into many ideals focused on the Christian historical significance and progression of it's central personality. How On Earth Did Jesus Become A God? is very strongly recommended and thought-provoking reading for all seminary students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the evolution of the Christian faith in general, and the role and perception of Jesus of Nazareth within that evolving theology.
