Bart D Ehrman

$69.99

Paperback
The twenty-seven books of the New Testament were not the only writings produced by early Christians. Nor were they the only ones to be accepted, at one time or another, as sacred Scripture. Unfortunately, nearly all the other early Christian writings have been lost or destroyed.

Each text is provided in an up-to-date and readable translation (including the NRSV for the New Testament), a
