By Bart D. Ehrman
For virtually 1,500 years, the hot testomony manuscripts have been copied by means of hand––and errors and intentional adjustments abound within the competing manuscript models. non secular and biblical pupil Bart Ehrman makes the provocative case that a lot of our commonly held ideals about the divinity of Jesus, the Trinity, and the divine origins of the Bible itself are the result of either intentional and unintended adjustments by means of scribes.
during this compelling and interesting ebook, Ehrman indicates the place and why alterations have been made in our earliest surviving manuscripts, explaining for the 1st time how the various adaptations of our loved biblical tales got here to be, and why merely sure models of the tales qualify for book within the Bibles we learn at the present time. Ehrman frames his account with own reflections on how his research of the Greek manuscripts made him abandon his as soon as ultra–conservative perspectives of the Bible.
