Misquoting Truth: A Guide to the Fallacies of Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus
Jones, Timothy Paul

Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 2007 pp. 175. $13.00


Description: Were the New Testament documents widely distorted by copyists? Can we in fact have no idea what was in the originals? Do we have no hope of knowing what eyewitnesses said and thought? Are other documents left out of the New Testament better sources for understanding early Christianity? While readily conceding that Ehrman has many of his facts straight, pastor and researcher Timothy Paul Jones argues that Ehrman is far too quick to jump to false and unnecessary conclusions. In clear, straightforward prose, Jones explores and explains the ins and outs of copying the New Testament, why lost Christianities were lost, and why the Christian message still rings true today.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Johannine Literature, John, Literature
