REVIEWS

“This detailed, carefully argued, and thoroughly documented study should be purchased for collections serving faculty and graduate students in New Testament studies and church history.”–Choice

“[Ehrman’s] arguments throughout deserve our attention; they are frequently compelling….Clearly set out and persuasively presented….Variants that treat of Christ’s person and function must from now on always be considered with reference to Ehrman’s thesis.”–Novum Testamentum

“This book is highly recommended as an excellent work of scholarship that is of great importance in the development of New Testament studies. Here is a new voice that addresses some of the central theological and historical issues.”–Journal of Theological Studies

“Bart D. Ehrman has written a book which will stimulate the casual reader and intrigue the academic or professional reader of the New Testament….An excellent work and definitely invaluable for lay or scholars.”–Anglican Theological Review

“a fine summary of Ehrman’s developed thinking and concerns, and as such a valuable contribution to the general discourse on the aims, methods, and limitations of textual criticism.” – Dirk Jongkind, Churchman

  1. Interesting. I do wonder if, “corruption of the text”, is an accurate phrase.
