Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent response. Readers will find the essential facts to stand firm presented in an accessible and extremely helpful manner. -- John Ankerberg, host of the award–winning John Ankerberg Show

Burroughs has done a great service in documenting the fatal flaws in Ehrman's thinking and showing how evangelicals can respond. -- Dr. Ron Rhodes, President of Reasoning from the Scriptures

Thoughtful, sensitive, biblical.... Buy three copies: one for yourself, one for a Christian friend, and one for an unbelieving friend. -- Robert W. Kellemen, Ph.D., author of “Soul Physicians” and “Spiritual Friends.”

From the Publisher

I am proud to publish this book because of its worthy message: that when you hear confusing messages in confusing times, you can and should still believe.

ABOUT NIMBLE BOOKS

Our trusty Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary defines "nimble" as follows:

1: quick and light in motion: AGILE *nimble fingers*

2 a: marked by quick, alert, clever conception, comprehension, or resourcefulness *a nimble mind* b: RESPONSIVE, SENSITIVE *a nimble listener*

And traces the etymology to the 14th Century:

Middle English nimel, from Old English numol holding much, from niman to take; akin to Old High German neman to take, Greek nemein to distribute, manage, nomos pasture, nomos usage, custom, law

The etymology is reminiscent of the old Biblical adage, "to whom much is given, much is expected" (Luke 12:48). Nimble Books seeks to honor that Christian principle by combining the spirit of nimbleness with the Biblical concept of abundance: we deliver what you need to know about a subject in a quick, resourceful, and sensitive manner.

Format: Paperback
First, you should understand that this is not what most people would call a book. There is clearly little, if ANY, editing, and more importantly vetting, of the arguments.

What Mr. Burroughs has done is to take reviews and blogs concerning Bart D. Ehrman's book "Misquoting Jesus" off the internet and interspersed his own comments among them. There are about five internet sources for his criticisms, and most come from three sources.

Daniel B. Wallace's book review,

Craig L. Blomberg's book review

Ben Witherington's blog

J. P. Holding's book review

The ebook has 78 pages in it, but only 45 pages have actual content regarding Ehrman's arguments in his book. Even that is somewhat generous. Burroughs own contributions couldn't be more than 10 pages---if that.

Burroughs expresses a great deal of admiration for Ehrman in his acknowledgements and notes, which is a contrast to much of the rest of his book.

Chapter 1. Burroughs opening chapter feigns praise by expressing admiration for Ehrman's popular success through lists of public appearances at Universities, on Radio, on TV, and in Newsapapers---all of them conservatives would recognize as LIBERAL organizations. The hint is that this book is a POPULAR (un-scholarly) sellout, and not a work to be taken seriously. The message to conservatives is quite clear: Ehrman is a liberal, and not to be taken seriously.

Chapter 2. This might come as a surprise to some readers as it is titled "What Misquoting Jesus Gets Right." It turns out, that Ehrman's work, despite the book's claim to the contrary in its title, gets most of it right---according to these most ardent critics!

This reads like a zealot's response
to facts he can't bear to be true.
It doesn't matter that you can verify Erhman's facts for yourself.
This 'pamphlet' is the kind of fluff that is actually embarrasing to all who can think rationally.In grand apologist tradition, if you can't refute the facts resort to evasion and gibberish. I honestly feel sorry
for these folks.

This is not a serious book, it is just a pamphlet. Mr. Burroughts is totally biased and just uses misleading arguments. Reading this book was a total waste of time.

This is such utter drivel that Amazon should not lower itself to offer such unmitigated tripe. If there were ANY scholarly work to back this purely religious tract, it might have redeeming value. As it is, this 'book' is nothing more that some right-wing religious crackpot's effort at 15 minutes of fame. Would that I could cut that to 15 seconds ... and get my friend's money back for buying this platitudinous twaddle.

Another reaction to scholarly works which posit anything contrary to "the truth" contained within the Bible.

Let me quote Carl Sagan (yes, yes, I know that he was a professed atheist, but bear with me here):

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion. [Carl Sagan, 1987 CSICOP keynote address]

What really burns me down about pieces like this is that in the case of belief, there seems to be this imbalance of fact. Not so much that there is an blatant absence of factual, testable evidence that there really was/is a Jesus or God for that matter to begin with, but that when confronted with any actual evidence contrary to these, the problems begin. And the problems are these: even though all of what Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hopi Indians, or whoever is primarily based upon faith and belief, anything contrary or challenging to these must be automatically backed up by extraordinary or incontrovertible evidence.

WHAT? Wait, let me get this straight: You have faith in something that you have little to absolutely no proof of, and yet when scholarly work presents evidence to the contrary of what you believe based upon faith and little to no proof, that scholarly work needs to back up what it has found with mounds of factual, provable evidence? Does anyone else see a problem here?

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By S. Lewis on April 14, 2009
Format: Paperback
It is extremely sad that in the face of obvious historical indications that the bible has been cobbled together based on the popular opinions of various and sundry human agencies that any dissenting opinion dare not be allowed to stand. The bible was a changeable and varying collection of documents that most certainly deserves the closest scrutiny and an open mind that allows one to discount the myths and the hyperbole in order to find the gems of wisdom. This book comes nowhere near the levels of rationalism and idealism that is inherently required when debating how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. The author is just plain scared and has no real faith, else his faith would have stood on its own.
