The problems with the Bible that New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman discussed in his bestseller Misquoting Jesus--and on The Daily Show with John Stewart, NPR, and Dateline NBC, among others--are expanded upon exponentially in his latest book: Jesus, Interrupted. This New York Times bestseller reveals how books in the Bible were actually forged by later authors, and that the New Testament itself is riddled with contradictory claims about Jesus--information that scholars know... but the general public does not. If you enjoy the work of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, and John Shelby Spong, you'll find much to ponder in Jesus, Interrupted.

I am still a Christian after reading this very good book. My intent was to find ways to disagree with this apostate (hahah) and strengthen my faith & I did that....But in an un-anticipated way. Ehrman explains many of the contradictions I've picked up on since childhood - Grist for the faithful - I have to laugh when I hear [smart?] people saying "you better be careful with agnostic's writings" - The point is there were so many competing Christianities prior to Nicaea. I guess it is true - The victors write history - Who'd of thunk?

Reply to rjc34, unfortunately this "must read for all Christians" will be immediately called propaganda and atheist agenda. They will not take it seriously or even consider this with an open-mind
