As a Christian believer (albeit open minded) I found this book fascinating. It certainly has caused me to look differently and more deeply and the new testament gospels that we all tend to accept blindly. It has actually deepened (not threatened) my faith. Thank you Prof. Ehrman, I only wish I had taken your classes while at UNC.
especially Edwards and Andrew Young, I am happy to see the truth of all of those unfortunate events published. This is likely a more truthful account of the people involved, their personalities, and fallacies (including Andrew's own) than we will ever see otherwise. As someone who deeply supported John in all of his campaigns, these events saddened me. Hopefully, we can all learn what hubris in those in power does! Thanks Andrew for having the guts to tell it like it was.
A great start for Prof. Ehrman's other and equally fascinating books. I have also reviewed Jesus, Interrupted. Both incredible books.
