Read his other books than just this one,
This review is from: Truth and Fiction in The Da Vinci Code: A Historian Reveals What We Really Know about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Constantine (Kindle Edition)
Other reviews have said that this book was to cash in with the da vinci code that was big hit in 2004. It was quickly written and quite thin on the ground.
His other books are a lot better than this one by far. It a shame that most will only read this by Bart D Ehrman and be put off, so not to read any of his other works. This book is only an introduction to this subject and it need expanding.
Read "Lost Christianties" "Lost Scriptures" and "Missquoting Jesus" for a good read and fuller understanding of this subject, that this short book lightly covers. Dont be put off by this book. Read other books by Bart D Ehrman. It worth your time.
Replace this book with"Lost books of the Bible for Dummies" if think the book not that good. And look out for Laurence Gardner Grail related series of books Bloodline of the Holy Grail, Genesis of the Grail Kings and Mary Magdalene.) This will fill any gaps that this book only skimmes/quickly glance over. A.W
