"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

Ehrman's book is essential reading for those interested in the origins of the New Testament
on 29 January 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
It gives one a very good background of the New Testament from a historical rather than from faith or a devotional approach. The introduction to each of the books of the New Testament is also excellent, one does not have to be a professional Christian historian to follow the book. It is quite clear to a lay reader like me who reads about Christian beginnings purely for interest.

Very interesting and although I bought it for a class, I'm actually enjoying reading it. What more can you ask for from a textbook?

A good undergraduate introduction
on 15 March 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Ehrman is a brilliant teacher of Bible, even as an atheist. And this is clear from his numerous books. I think this would be good at the undergraduate level. More needs to be in it to use at a Masters level.
