Bart Ehrman is a widely known scholar of the New Testament. He’s also made lots of money from producing many controversial and NY Times-bestselling books. I’ve seen and checked out his books on CD at my local library. I’ll share critiques of four of Ehrman’s recent books below.
In some discussions — if Jesus lived — I agree with Dr. Ehrman. Virtually every historian, atheist and believing scholar, understands Jesus of Nazareth lived. In other discussions — the New Testament was forged, for example, — I don’t agree with his interpretations.
John Warwick Montgomery is a believing Christian who criticizes Ehrman’s views on Jesus and his recent books “. Montgomery explains that the New Testament writers are who they say they are, and that Jesus is who He said He was.
As a believing Latter-day Saint, I have certain disagreements with both sides in this debate. That is, Montgomery defends classical Christianity and is an evangelical. And Ehrman is an atheist. But in this debate I agree almost completely with Dr. Montgomery, and appreciate his defense of early Christianity and the manuscripts.
