HarperOne Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them)

In this New York Times bestseller, leading Bible expert Bart Ehrman skillfully demonstrates that the New Testament is riddled with contradictory views about who Jesus was and the significance of his life. Ehrman reveals that many of the books were written in the names of the apostles by Christians living decades later, and that central Christian doctrines were the inventions of still later theologians. Although this has been the standard and widespread view of scholars for two centuries, most people have never learned of it.Jesus, Interrupted is a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we have when attempting to reconstruct the life and meaning of Jesus.

Read "Fabricating Jesus" and "Misquoting Truth" to get a scholarly refutation of this error-laden work by a man who by his own statements does not believe the God of the Word, or the Word of God. Satan's oldest trick:"Did God really say...?" Like "Dawkins Delusion" this pseudo scholar has an obvious hidden agenda...to destroy faith in God by twisting historical facts. If you're not familiar with actual facts, this material can seem intriguingly plausible.

Excellent, easy to read. Also recommend God's Problem and Misquoting Jesus. These books will challenge Christians to a deeper understanding of the Bible.
