Book Review

Forged by Bart Ehrman.

I am enjoying the book immensely.  As always Ehrman delivers an easy to understand book that allows laymen to understand the scholarship he puts into studying the Bible and why he has come to the conclusions he has.

The Blog of Dr. James F. McGrath, Clarence L. Goodwin Chair in New Testament Language and Literature at Butler University, Indianapolis has an excellent in depth book review, that you can read here.


Against those who argue that the Bible must be inerrant and truthful since God does not lie, Ehrman approaches the matter more logically: “If God created an error-free book, then the book should be without errors. If what we have is not an error-free book, then it is not a book that God has delivered to us without errors” (p.117).

 I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in theology.
