"A sometimes complex area has been made very palatable and enjoyable to read. Dare I say-even quite exciting!"-Online Reviewer.
"When it comes to defending the Bible from textual, scientific, and historical criticism, Edward D. Andrews has everything you need to any complaint or argument against the Bible's divine inspiration."-Logos Bible Software.
MISREPRESENTING JESUS Debunking Bart D. Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" is an attempt to look behind the scenes at Ehrman's book, and get a picture of his mindset as he penned it by the way he worded something, or repeatedly worded something, or left something out, and far more. This is not to say that I did not get into his arguments, and debunk them, for that was done as well. By the time you finish this book, you will find that Bart Ehrman in Misquoting Jesus is evangelizing for atheism, and using his misleading words to find new members, by way of doubt, contributing to the unwary Christian's spiritual shipwreck.

Mr. Andrews’ book Misrepresenting Jesus is compelling, informative and scholarly. Written in three sections, and over 500 pages long, Andrews develops a strong foundation with a purpose to debunking Bart Ehrman’s book Misquoting Jesus. (Ehrman’s book promotes the idea that the Bible cannot be trusted because we do not have the original manuscripts; that there are lots of scribal errors and textual variants in the manuscripts; and that the Gospels are in error regarding the “sayings” of Jesus.) In his first section, Andrews concentrates on textual criticism, paleography, scribal copying, and textual variants, thereby showing Ehrman’s erroneous statements regarding the Bible and its reliability. In the second section, Andrews discusses biblical difficulties and offers, among other jewels, ten important procedures for handling these difficulties. In the third section, Andrews provides lucent disclosures of the multiple errors contained in Ehrman’s book. Andrews ably demonstrates how Ehrman paints a false picture of scribal copying of manuscripts and exaggerates the variants found in those manuscripts. Andrews is very thorough in his response to Ehrman’s claims, and those who read Misrepresenting Jesus will be able to assess and debunk the similar methodology Ehrman uses in many of his other books. Andrews also makes a strong case for Christians to know and understand the Bible so they are, as Peter tells us (1 Pet 3:15), ready and able to defend their faith in the Bible and Jesus to those who ask meaningful questions, as well as negative critics. I highly recommend this scholarly and comprehensive rebuke against Ehrman’s book Misquoting Jesus.
An entertaining and informative work on the New Testamant. Andrews takes complex subjects and breaks them down for elemental study. This book is part history, part linguistics and all Bible! I have gained a strength in belief and confidence in the defense of God's work. It was well researched and I appreciate the recommended reading material for further study.
I was surprised by the amount of material in Andrews' book. It is obvious that he had all his readers in mind, especially those who have little understanding of the origin of Biblical texts and textual criticism. In his book, Andrews presents a great argument against the Ehrman's attacks on the reliability and validity of Scripture while educating his readers about the same. The book is thorough and designed to aid students in understanding and retaining the material presented. Overall the book was interesting and educational. Definitely one to keep around for further study.
