Summary

Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times bestseller Misquoting Jesus left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches--and it's not what most people think.

Here Ehrman reveals what scholars have unearthed: The authors of the New Testament have diverging views about who Jesus was and how salvation works: The New Testament contains books that were forged in the names of the apostles by Christian writers who lived decades later; Jesus, Paul, Matthew, and John all represented fundamentally different religions; Established Christian doctrines--such as the suffering messiah, the divinity of Jesus, and the trinity--were the inventions of still later theologians.

These are not idiosyncratic perspectives of just one modern scholar. As Ehrman skillfully demonstrates, they have been the standard and widespread views of critical scholars across a full spectrum of denominations and traditions. Why most people have never heard such things?

This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for--a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus.

A Great Introduction To Biblical Scholarship August 1, 2011
by
I liked this textbook a lot more than I expected to. This is an extremely well-researched, scholarly, disinterested, and enlightening account of the *human* history of the New Testament. The material is organized very well, and each chapter builds on information given in previous chapters. If you really want to understand the Bible and where it came from then this is textbook is a must read. Highly recommended
