Christianity Today and Export Licences

Jerry Pattengale
In an article in "Christianity Today", full of cutesy references to "Da Vinci Code lore" and "Hogwarts", Jerry Pattengale tries to paint a picture of himself as a responsible buyer of antiquities. His efforts to establish his credibility are at times risable:
We were approached by dealers and reporters in the oddest of ways, [...] One fellow kept calling about a buried boxcar of antiquities in Texas, another claiming ownership of something from Jesus’ birth stable, and yet another with plaster casts of the first-century tomb in Jerusalem. Of course, once I ask to see the Israeli Antiquities Authority documentation, the conversations usually change.
Yes, substantiating those collecting histories can be a bit of a deal-breaker.
