Reviews

"In sum, this book is a fine work of scholarship --innovative, judicious, alert, attentive both to its overarching argument and to the supportive details. . . Ehrman's work is provocative and should give rise to further reflection. I believe it will make a significant contribution to scholarship in both New Testament and early Christian history for a long time to come." --Church History "This detailed, carefully argued, and thoroughly documented study should be purchased for collections serving faculty and graduate students in New Testament studies and church history."--Choice "Written in a clear and interesting style."--The Princeton Seminary Bulletin "Ehrman's study is well written....This book will be useful for senior seminars and beginning graduate students."--The Journal of Religion "Ehrman's is a good book, and one which deserves the attention of scholars"--Reviews in Religion and Theology "[Ehrman's] arguments throughout deserve our attention; they are frequently compelling....Clearly set out and persuasively presented....Variants that treat of Christ's person and function must from now on always be considered with reference to Ehrman's thesis."--Novum Testamentum "This book is highly recommended as an excellent work of scholarship that is of great importance in the development of New Testament studies. Here is a new voice that addresses some of the central theological and historical issues."--Journal of Theological Studies "Bart D. Ehrman has written a book which will stimulate the casual reader and intrigue the academic or professional reader of the New Testament....An excellent work and definitely invaluable for lay or scholars."--Anglican Theological Review "This is a fascinating book, which deserves a wide readership....I thoroughly recommend this book for its textual and theological interest and for its readability."--Irish Theological Quarterly "[A] detailed and carefully documented study."--Religious Studies Review "This is a book well worth reading. The New Testament scholar will find in it an excellent study of textual criticism, systematically organized under the rubric of scribal Tendenzen. The systematic theologian as well as the student of early Christian thought will find in it an excellent expose of the fashion in which conviction colors the way in which one reads the tradition."--Journal of Early Christian Studies "This detailed, carefully argued, and thoroughly documented study should be purchased for collections serving faculty and graduate students in New Testament studies and church history."--Choice "Written in a clear and interesting style."--The Princeton Seminary Bulletin "Ehrman's study is well written....This book will be useful for senior seminars and beginning graduate students."--The Journal of Religion "Ehrman's is a good book, and one which deserves the attention of scholars"--Reviews in Religion and Theology "[Ehrman's] arguments throughout deserve our attention; they are frequently compelling....Clearly set out and persuasively presented....Variants that treat of Christ's person and function must from now on always be considered with reference to Ehrman's thesis."--Novum Testamentum "This book is highly recommended as an excellent work of scholarship that is of great importance in the development of New Testament studies.

The systematic theologian as well as the student of early Christian thought will find in it an excellent expose of the fashion in which conviction colors the way in which one reads the tradition."--Journal of Early Christian Studies "Ehrman's study is convincing and a valuable addition to our knowledge of textual variants, especially those which have to do with the early Christological controversies. The book is carefully planned and in all respects attractive and precise. Ehrman's style facilitates the study of this problem. An extensive bibliography is included."--Neotestamentica "[A] fine study....[A] rich and well-documented study. Ehrman's work will certainly be of interest to serious text critics, but also to students of the hisroty of early Christianity generally. His effort to implicate the stidy of the text in the history of early Christian controversies will enrich both disciplines."--The Catholic Biblical Quarterly "Brilliant analysis....Ehrman shows incredible breadth in working with the materials and has a clear methodological framework."--Rollin A. Ramsaran, Emmanuel School of Religion "An excellent way for students to get a readable introduction to the complexities of textual criticism and its importance for the development of tradition."--Michael L. Cook,S.J.,Gonzaga University "The goal of the book is to investigate how scribes modified the words of Scripture that key inherited."--New Testament Abstracts
