"Ehrman's brief introduction is exceptionally student-friendly because of its concise treatment of the New Testament and the clarity with which it explains scholarly approaches to the text. Given its clarity, accessibility, and Ehrman's wonderful prose, it's hardly surprising that this textbook is a first choice for so many instructors."--Nicole Kelley, Florida State University"The overall quality of the text is outstanding. My students unanimously report that it is the only textbook they have that they do not fall asleep reading, and many of them choose not to sell it back to the bookstore at the conclusion of the term."--Davina C. Lopez, Eckerd College"Ehrman writes in a way that expresses the ideas clearly, succinctly, and directly. I think students will connect with the content much more easily because of his writing style."--Kathryn Valdivia, University of San Diego and Cuyamaca College
