Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Readers of Ehrman's popular scholarly works such as Misquoting Jesus should be pleased with his latest offering...a compelling study of an important archaeological find..."—Dallas Morning News

"A must for those interested in the subject of early Christianity,this volume will also attract readers intrigued by all the hoopla arising from the discovery of the lost Gospel."—Booklist

"In typically brilliant fashion, Ehrman tells the lively tale of the modern discovery of the Gospel of Judas and its significance for us today." —Publishers Weekly

"The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot is a gem of a book. Smart, lively, and eminently readable, this book provides a brilliant glimpse into the world of research and scholarship on one of the most provocative gospels from the world of the early church. It is required reading for anyone who wishes to learn more about Judas and the Gospel of Judas." —Marvin Meyer, Griset Professor of Bible and Christian Studies, Chapman University, and co-author of The Gospel of Judas

"An insightful, penetrating and provocative study of Christian origins. Bart Ehrman brings a scholarly, encyclopedic mind and a talented pen to this study. The Judas who has inspired centuries of anti-Semitism, feeding the dark side of Christian history, will never be the same. Neither will be the reader who engages this book." —John Shelby Spong, author of The Sins of Scripture: Exposing the Bible's Texts of Hate to Reveal the God of Love, and Bishop, The Episcopal Church
