Description

Crosby claims that much of the Bible is myth. Since some myth may be true, the next step is to label that part of myth adjudged to be untrue, such as folklore. But myth and folklore are not necessarily the same. Lore serves further as an interpretation, elucidation, embellishment, or spin upon the myth. This lore, in turn, may help clarify one's beliefs or it may enable one to see more clearly what is essential to one's faith or nonessential. Crosby follows the exegesis and biblical criticism norms of Albert Schweitzer's quest of the historical Jesus with emphasis on mythus pioneer David Friedrich Strauss. Theology meets biology and physiology in culmination with all biblical study. This takes place in the sapiens brain, the supreme source of all language and imagination via which we invent the reality in which we choose to dwell. John Fulling Crosby left the Christian ministry in 1967. He did a PhD in Human Development and Marriage/Family Therapy at Syracuse and then taught at Indiana University and the University of Kentucky, where he also served as Chairman of the Department of Family Studies for seven years. In addition to the literature in the field of marriage and therapy he has written The Flipside of Godspeak: Theism as Constructed Reality (Wipf & Stock, 2007). Also, Aftermath: Surviving the Loss of God (2013) and Sons and Fathers: Challenges To Paternal Authority (2014).
