This is an excellent book. It paints a good picture of the literary climate during the times when the gospels were written. It offers a fair and balanced view of the bible's authors for the general reader, with copious notes for those desiring further study. I have already ordered three more of Ehrman's books.

Not very well written..

Ehrman eschews real concrete details and facts for dogmatic assertions and emotional arguments. I think he must have been hurt by Christians in the past and sadly, this has affected his writing..

    Ehrman has become a joke. His books are repetitive, designed to inflame, poorly written and poorly researched. He is no longer well respected among academics and has to pander to armchair students who desire to discredit the Bible. A good indication is who most often references him - atheists and Mormons.
