Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times bestseller Misquoting Jesus left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches—and it's not what most people think. Here Ehrman reveals what scholars have unearthed:

    –The authors of the New Testament have diverging views about who Jesus was and how salvation works

    –The New Testament contains books that were forged in the names of the apostles by Christian writers who lived decades later

    –Jesus, Paul, Matthew, and John all represented fundamentally different religions

    –Established Christian doctrines—such as the suffering messiah, the divinity of Jesus, and the trinity—were the inventions of still later theologians

These are not idiosyncratic perspectives of just one modern scholar. As Ehrman skillfully demonstrates, they have been the standard and widespread views of critical scholars across a full spectrum of denominations and traditions. Why is it most people have never heard such things? This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for—a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus.

    " Any critical reading of the 'New Testament' will reveal many contradictions between the communities that wrote the Gospels and Acts. Ehrman is accessible to non-scholars and the erudite alike. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by RussBear | 1/15/2014

    " Bart Ehrman is one of the few biblical scholars who tells the truth. If you enjoyed Ehrman's earlier book, Misquoting Jesus, you will enjoy his latest book. This book offers a more broad overview of the entire New Testament. Ehrman's work is always provocative, unsettling and, above all, entertaining. "
