Jesus Interrupted Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible - And Why We Don't Know About Them
Author: Bart D. Ehrman
Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times bestseller Misquoting Jesus left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches?and it's not what most people think. Here Ehrman reveals what scholars have unearthed:
  • The authors of the New Testament have dive...  more »
  • 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.

The contradictions are not so hidden. They are openly discussed in churches everyday. Also, I did know about them--so I do not understand the book title. If you have never studied the Bible and do not attend church and are looking for an excuse to be agnostic, then this book will appeal to you. If you are a serious student of the Bible this book will appear to be nit picking and Dr. Ehrman will come across as a master of the obvious. There are some "contradictions" in the Bible--no doubt. It's just that the book title is designed to sell books instead of be an accurate reflection of the substance of the book.
