The Human Story Behind the Divine Book
In this New York Times bestseller, leading Bible expert Bart Ehrman skillfully demonstrates that the New Testament is riddled with contradictory views about who Jesus was and the significance of his life. Ehrman reveals that many of the books were written in the names of the apostles by Christians living decades later, and that central Christian doctrines were the inventions of still later theologians. Although this has been the standard and widespread view of scholars for two centuries, most people have never learned of it.
Jesus, Interrupted is a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we have when attempting to reconstruct the life and meaning of Jesus.
Ehrman shows that it makes historical errors and contradicts itself repeatedly.
Christian's reading this book shouldn't be afraid of losing their faith, as much as an Atheist being afraid of reading the Bible and gaining faith.
Overall, a very well written book, free from the fetters of overly dry and scholarly language, presented in an easy to read format.
