    Step back to Christianity's first three centuries to see how it transitioned from the religion of Jesus to a religion about Jesus. How did a single group from among many win the struggle for dominance to establish the beliefs central to the faith, rewrite the history of Christianity's internal conflicts, and produce a canon of sacred texts – the New Testament – that supported its own views?

    What would have made From Jesus to Constantine: A History of Early Christianity better?

    If professor Bart D Ehrman would have walked up to the microphone, turned back around and sat down without opening his mouth. Just kidding he has a right to his distorted views.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure but it won't be another book about Angry Atheists trying to get their message across.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sadness.


    Any additional comments?

    It is saddens me that so many people are hung up on the little things in the Bible that they miss the hole picture about Jesus's message.It is about Loving your neighbor as yourself and loving God. If the New Testament was not true then surely the other letters of the bible would not have small discrepancies in them, because any good author would know that any intelligent person like professor Bart D Ehrmman would point this out to us who are less educated them he is. That we would be enlightened by his Atheistic views. We would quickly abandon our foolish faith and join him in celebrating our freedom of tolerance of all sin. If there is no higher power (God) to be accountable to then who's to say what is right or wrong? Anything goesBecause of those discrepancies one can tell that the four gospels in the New Testament are true. If you had four people that witness a crime their stories will not be the same unless they all got together in corroboration and straitened their stories out. But because the letters were written from different perspective of the authors as to what they (Witnessed)remembered the reliability of the four gospels are more credible in my opinion.
