Alternative Christianities

Nothing's ever new it seems. Philip Jenkins writes,

On average, the Biblical world sees a startling new discovery of allegedly cosmic significance every four or five years.

In themselves, the finds are usually interesting (if they happen to be authentic), but where the media always go wrong in reporting them is in vastly exaggerating just how novel and ground-breaking they are.
