Bart Ehrman's book The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture
has received much attention since its publication nearly 2 decades ago. This book Revisiting the Corruption of the New Testament
is the first book to present essays which form a sound, scholarly, and powerful but collegial rejoinder to Ehrman's thesis. It presents five essays in support of the authenticity and integrity of the Christian canon--and argues against both Ehrman's methodology and his conclusions. Written by students mentored by editor Daniel Wallace, the essays include:
- Lost in Transmission: How Badly did the Scribes Corrupt the New Testament text?
- The Least Orthodox Reading is to be Preferred: A New Canon for New Testament Textual Criticism?
- The Legacy of a Letter: Sabellianism or Scribal Blunder in John 1.1c?
- Patristic Theology and Recension in Matthew 24.36: An Evaluation of Ehrman's Text-Critical Methodology
- Tracking-Thomas: A Text-Critical Look at the Gospel of Thomas
- Jesus as theos: A Textual Examination
Revisiting the Corruption of the New Testament is an immensely important apologetic work on the New testament. With increasing skepticism in the public's eyes about the veracity of Scripture, this book sets the record straight about the origins and transmission of the Bible.
