Michael Goulder was Professor of Biblical Studies at the University of Birmingham, well known for his creative approach to the Gospels and the Psalms and for resigning his orders as an Anglican priest not long after contributing to The Myth of God Incarnate, a celebrated collection of essays that questioned the traditional Christian doctrine of the Incarnation . . .Update (20 July 2010): The Times has now placed a lot of its content behind a paywall.

Update (23 February 2014): the obituary is now available at the following URL:
