Great insights and answers.
Derek
One important insight that the book has that I agree with and have noticed myself is that Ehrman most often is quite good at giving you one side of the argument.
ApologiaPhoenix
Well structured, concise but including enough detail to understand the depth of scholarly research involved.

Summary:
Truth in a Culture of Doubt is: "Written for all serious students of Scripture, this book will enable readers to respond to a wide variety of arguments raised against the reliability of Scripture and the truthfulness of Christianity." Back cover.
The writing team of Andreas J. Kostenberger, Darrell L. Bock, and Josh D. Chatraw, has written Truth in a Culture of Doubt, in response to Bart D. Ehrman's work to discredit the Bible, Christianity, and Jesus Christ.
In five chapters covering a wide sphere of arguments that Ehrman has raised in his speeches and "best-seller" books, the writing team of Truth in a Culture of Doubt, addresses each argument in penetrating theology and Bible knowledge.
Without argument, nor acerbic slander, the veil is removed from Ehrman's carefully crafted ambition to tarnish the image of Christ.
Bart D. Ehrman Ph.D., states on his website he is a "historian and not a believer." Yet, people have been "taken-in" by his heresy, because they do not read nor understand the Bible. They've allowed other people, such as Ehrman to tell them what the Bible is really all about, or that Jesus is not really who we think he is, nor what the disciples thought he was. The Gospel message has all been a sad fairy tale.
"We haven't written this book to convince Bart Ehrman or other skeptical scholars of our views. Ehrman, we trust, knows most of the information we set forth in these pages and has chosen to follow his own line of reasoning due to a variety of factors.

Bart Ehrman is described in this book as the rising rock star of the New Testament world. While more and more Christians are learning about him, too many are not, and sadly, the first time they often hear of him, they are unprepared for what he has to say. The tragedy is best described by the way Chatraw sums it up.

Later I was a bit surprised when I had a similar discussion with a couple of well-respected pastors in my community. These conversations helped me see once again that most people, even pastors, don't know much about what's going on in the world of biblical scholarship. The other authors of this book have had similar discussions.

In fact, just recently I was sharing some detail concerning the last 12 verses of Mark and a good Christian friend was concerned I might have caused some doubt for some. I understood that concern well and shared some information on textual criticism to help deal with it, but it's a shame that that which is common knowledge is seen as detrimental to the faith of some simply because the pastors have shielded them from the academy. In fact, pastors are usually the worst culprits.

Thankfully, the lay people do have friends in the authors of this book. These authors have done the service of taking Ehrman's popular works seriously and addressing the main concerns that are raised in some of the most well-known ones. The reader who goes through this book and learns it well will be much more equipped to survive a class from Ehrman or someone like him.

If you are familiar with the arguments, you won't find much here that is new, but that's okay. This is written for those who are not really familiar with Ehrman and his arguments yet.

I found this book very helpful in thoughtfully responding to questions of doubt that Ehrman and seekers of Christianity's truth may ask. Well structured, concise but including enough detail to understand the depth of scholarly research involved. Highly recommend this to anyone that has read Ehrman's books or even taken his classes (like my wife who affirmed some of the examples about Ehrman's teaching having taken his courses before). Excellent summary at end of the book that will be useful for revisiting the ideas again in the future.
