The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus-and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others-are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus-information that scholars know... but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, you'll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.^^^The authors of the New Testament have diverging views about who Jesus was and how salvation works ^^^The New Testament contains books that were forged in the names of the apostles by Christian writers who lived decades later ^^^Jesus, Paul, Matthew, and John all represented fundamentally different religions ^^^Established Christian doctrines - such as the suffering messiah, the divinity of Jesus, and the trinity - were the inventions of still later theologians ^^These are not idiosyncratic perspectives of just one modern scholar. As Ehrman skillfully demonstrates, they have been the standard and widespread views of critical scholars across a full spectrum of denominations and traditions. Why is it most people have never heard such things? This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for - a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus. ^

Ehrman reveals that many of the books were written in the names of the apostles by Christians living decades later, and that central Christian doctrines were the inventions of still later theologians. Although this has been the standard and widespread view of scholars for two centuries, most people have never learned of it. ^ "Jesus, Interrupted" is a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we have when attempting to reconstruct the life and meaning of Jesus.
