Vistas on important subjects, 4 Feb. 2014
Ehrman has given accessible vistas in this book on the specialist field of text criticism and the world of early Christian communities. He shares his own journey with the field and explains how it related to his faith journey. My favourite discussions are his exploration of the story of the healing of the leper (Mark 1:44ff) and Luke's account of the agony in Gethsemane. While not completely convincing, Ehrman offers some challenging hypotheses.
