    Fundamentalist Christians, like this author, perenially tear down other works without valid basis. They rush to publication any 'answer' they can just do 'counteract' the 'Devil.' Don't waste your money on this book. It's just another propaganda tool for unthinking Christians who are unwilling to consider the truth about Bibilical/ Theological history and reality.

    What a waste of time....lame attempt at rebuttal

    I read this to try to get as much information as i could. After reading Misquoting Jesus,I saw this book, so I wanted to be fair....Do not waste your money. This book is ridiculous. It is merely an unintelligent attempt to refute something, but instead of using evidence it uses opinion and relies on the readers ignorance. If you want a well researched book, you would be better off in the fiction section. If you are a faithful follower, you may like it, since you are a member of the choir that is being preached to. If you are open minded....stay away...this is merely fodder for the wanna-be apologists.....I wish I could get my money back!!!!

    This is a poorly written bit of religious propaganda that should be skipped by anyone with a serious/critical mind.

    Intellectual dishonesty abounds

    Just came across this in the library. I read it with some interest to see what a worthwhile refutation of Bart Ehrman's work might look like. This was not it. As I understand his 'argument', the bible is inerrant if you decide inerrant does not mean free from error. The 'truth' of the bible (whatever that may mean) is what makes it inerrant. If you like intellectual dishonesty on this scale, then this is the book for you. If you any critical faculties whatsoever then save your money.

    Intelligent and readable textual criticism

    Having read numerous tomes that try to counter the claims of Bart Ehrman, I often at the close feel somewhat disappointed. It's not that the authors did not have sound evidence or posit their points well, it's that they missed Ehrman's true, underlying criticism. But Jones doesn't. he understands what Ehrman is saying about all ancient biographies and critiques Ehrman's work well while fully admitting he has many of his fact correct. really, a wonderful apologetic yet neutral (how often can you find that?) read.

    Highly recommended.

    Many people are not fans of Bart Ehrman. It's nice to see someone with the proper credentials stand up to Ehrman and expose his inaccuracies.

    Disappointed in Content and Argument. I did not find this book

    Disappointed in Content and Argument. I did not find this book as well researched as those they are criticizing. The books I have read by Mr. Ehrman have been very well researched and only point out the human errors and “enhancements” that most accept as reality. When I started this book, I was hoping for a factual based argument, but that was not to be. I would not recommend this book to those that are interested in historical studies of scripture and Christianity.
