Publisher Comments:

The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus—and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others—are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus—information that scholars know… but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, youll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.

Synopsis:

This "New York Times" bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus.

Synopsis:

The Human Story Behind the Divine Book

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.

Pastor Chris, January 5, 2011 (view all comments by Pastor Chris)
This is a very heavy read that will not shake your faith, but will open your eyes to some things that we graduates of most seminaries have known for quite a while. Controversial in many circles, these observations will allow you to further research scripture and allow you to form your own opinions. It can be like drinking from a fire hose, so take in moderation. Dr. Ehrman is an awesome professor, author, and authority, and is very gifted at taking a tough subject, and making it more clear. I use this book for personal review of my seminary days, as well as to lead study groups for my more advanced students of the Bible and theology. Enjoy, learn, and find peace at every step of your journey.
