"This volume is well-written in an accessible tone and style." (Chris Keith, SCJ, Spring 2009)
". . .a strong defence against claims from a fellow textual criticism scholar, Bart Ehrman. Fills a deeply needed void, in that it continues on Ehrman's path in making textual criticism even more accessible to readers without formal theological schooling, while systematically addressing the allegations of textual fallacy raised by Ehrman. While succesfully meeting a large swathe of charges against the validity and trustworthiness of the NT, the book is also a wonderfully easy and concise introduction to the history, background and treatment of the Gospels." (Samuel Ciszuk, Chrisendom (www.christilling.de/blog), January 23, 2009)
"Good reply to Ehrman and gives direct corrections and clarifications of Ehrman's arguments against the Bible. I highly recommend the book." (Jason L. Reed, Christian Apologetics Journal,)
"Ehrman raises interesting questions in his book, Misquoting Jesus.Unfortunately, he provides the wrong answers. Jones offers a fairer, more accurate presentation of the facts about the New Testament's reliability. I strongly recommend this book to pastors and lay people alike." (Pastor George P. Wood, enrichment, Fall 2008)
"What we have here is a very short and readable treatment that basically echoes a lot of what Ehrman said and offers alternatives to a few of the conclusions that Ehrman reached." (Nick Norelli, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth, June 21, 2008)
"[A]n excellent book." (Does God Exist? March/April 2008)
"Misquoting Truth is an even-handed and careful rebuttal. . . . Jones makes a detailed analysis and does not give simple answers." (Christopher J. Barden for Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, March 2008)
"Jones is a good writer and presents the views he opposes with clarity and respect." (R. O. for Libraries Alive, Winter 2008)
"In this absorbing and easy-to-follow work, Jones carefully and courteously exposes the faulty logic behind one man's attempt to discredit the New Testament. This book is a must-read for anyone who questions biblical authority." (Jennifer McCaman in Christian Single, November 2007)
"Handily addresses Ehrman's major complaints and criticisms in an approach that is unusually irenic and a style that is surprisingly breezy." (JoelMiller.com, August 5, 2007)

Likewise, Bart Ehrman never estimates that there are 400.000 differences among the surviving manuscripts. This number is given by the textual critics. Some others suggest there are more than 600.000 differences. Again, these numbers are not Ehrman's, rather, other Biblical scholars' estimations. But Jones claims that this number is estimated by Ehrman.
This book is far from debunking "Misquoting Jesus". At many places it even strengthens the arguments in "Misquoting Jesus". Pretty much in every chapter, after author quotes from Bart Ehrman, he "agrees" with him. He has to, because Misquoting Jesus is full of facts. In other words, the author says Bart Ehrman is right with saying this but the bible is still true, because I believe in it.
Another thing that reduces the credibility of Jones's book is that there are a lot of imaginations and assumptions. Author simply assumes and at the end of his argument he presents his conclusion as a fact. Author, also, quotes from his favourite books rather than sources accepted by the Biblical scholars in general.
Shortly, "Misquoting Jesus" can't be debunked.
