The Untold Story of Forgery in the Bible
In Forged, leading Bible authority Bart D. Ehrman exposes one of the most unsettling ironies of the early Christian tradition: the use of deception to establish the truth. With the scholarly expertise and provocative claims for which he's known, Ehrman reveals which texts were forged in the name of Jesus's disciples and considers how the deceptions of an unnamed few have prevailed for centuries. The untold story of widespread forgery in the ancient world sheds new light on how documents of scandalous origin became part of the Bible we have today.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Like all of his popular works, this book was engaging, enlightening and very easy to read.
Rather than follow his religious indoctrination as a born-again Christian, the good doctor remains faithful to Jesus' maxim, "The truth will set you free."
This is another well written and persuasive book by Bart Ehrman that essentially questions the notion of biblical inerrancy.
