Basic Idiot

Paul Verhoeven, acclaimed director of such cinema "masterpieces" as Basic Instinct, Robocop, and that abomination, Starship Troopers, that still causes sci-fi writer Robert A. Heilein to spin in his grave, is taking a break from making pornographic, ultra-violent films to write a new biography on Jesus.

The working title is called Jesus of Nazareth: A Realistic Portrait. To be published in September.

What is Verhoeven's working thesis that will send many weak faithed church goers into a spiral of doubt? Get this: Mary was raped by a Roman solider! No way! I have never heard that one before! That sure is a different take than what Dan Brown offered, for sure.

And because he is a working scholar of that outstanding club of academics, The Jesus Seminar, I am sure he will interact in scrutinizing detail with all the evangelical apologetics supporting the orthodox, biblical picture of Jesus.

For some reason, I sense a film coming along sometime later next year.

Josh McDowell, either Evidence or More Evidence Demands a Verdict has a bit on an ancient accusation that Jesus' father was a Roman Soldier.
