Product Description


'Bart Ehrman, in merely two decades, has emerged as one of a handful of New Testament textual critics worldwide who work at the cutting edge. Most of the fascinating and meticulous articles in this volume formed the basis of or carry forward his influential work on The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture (1993), which displayed for us the socio-historical and theological contexts of textual variants, demonstrating effectively their dynamic, creative role in early Christianity. The essays are interestingly informative, remarkably insightful, and-in the best sense-genuinely provocative. Overall, the volume, which includes detailed methodological studies and treatments of individual texts, as well as the Kenneth Clark Lectures at Duke University (1997) and the Shaffer Lectures at Yale (2004), will be a stimulating challenge to biblical and patristic scholars and to early church historians.' Eldon Jay Epp. '..we are grateful to Brill for allowing us to see the development of Ehrman's thinking.[..] his essays are clear, concise, well-researched, and documented with good and helpful footnotes and bibliographies. We congratulate him on his labors to date and look forward to many more perceptive contributions to textual criticism from his keyboard.' J.K. Elliott, Review of Biblical Literature, 2007 'A must for anyone interested in the contributions of one of today's premier textual critics, this collection of twentyone essays exposes readers to the breadth of Ehrman's scholarly output over the last quarter century...An essential collection for anyone interested in the interface between NT textual criticism and disciplines once considered ancillary to it.' Juan Hernandez Jr., Religious Studies Review 36, 1, 2010 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Textural Criticism New Testament 9 Sep 2009
By Benny F. Mertens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ehrman writes extremely well. His comments in the 5 of his books that I have already read have been revealing to me and encourage me to learn more about the written words of the people 2,000 years ago. What did Jesus actually say? What did he do? Does Paul exaggerate what Jesus meant to do on earth? If Jesus knew he would die for mankind, why was he so surprised and ask "God, why did you forsake me?"
Where can I learn more about what Jesus meant, said and did?
How can I learn more about Paul and where he got his facts, ideas and lectures?
Ben Mertens, [...]
