The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus—and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others—are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus—information that scholars know… but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, you’ll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Informative, detailed, and interesting! Bart D. Ehrman makes biblical scholarship accessible to the layperson, and allows the reader to peek into this many centuries-old community. Informative, detailed, and interesting! Great for anyone curious about what we really know about the Bible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent! This is a must read, whether you are religious or not. The author presents facts, not gratuitous accusations, and the line of thought is easy to follow, the logic impeccable. A bit apologetic at the end, but since Bart Ehrman is living and working in the American South, I guess he has to walk on eggs sometimes... He must certainly not walk on water over there!

Editorial Reviews

“There’s something delicious (for nonbelievers, anyway) about the implacable, dispassionate way that Ehrman reveals how the supposedly “divine truth” of Christianity was historically constructed.”
