Thanks. I just ordered the electronic edition. I'll give it a look-see on the bus tomorrow.

Empty threats from someone who doesn't even understand the history of their own religions don't scare me silly.

They just make you seem desperate.

I see he dedicates it to Metzger, his mentor at Princeton, in memoriam.

Nice touch.

I'm truly sorry, I dislike having to disagree with adorable kitties as a rule. However, I must say that to think a person cannot study both Science and Theology, shows a lack of worldly experience.
Peace and love and scratching posts <3

Yes. The errors of Christiainity has been exposed for 1700 years. Sadly, Christians are either too stupid or deceitful to correct the errors or, like most Christians, don't care.
IMHPCPO, if the message remains and is adhered to, I don't care. Interpretation and theory leves a lot to be desired and is far too individually personal to argue against.
Peace and love and not Paul's writings <3

True but the "Bible is perfect" people can't argue against it. It "proves" that three of the four gospels in their book are condemnded by their demigod Paul and that the "perfect word of God" is internally flawed.
You just referred to Paul as a 'demigod'. <giggling gleefully to myself and getting funny looks from my eldest son>
Btw, I don't think of the Bible, as it is now, as being 'perfect'.

You were at work today, right? Wouldn't want you to be hypocritical and obey scriptures.
Your scriptures only apply to believers, silly. And many Christians are required to work on Sunday. Start with them if you have some condemning to do.

It doesn't really matter what extremist theism you follow. Extremism is extremism.

Why were the atheists at the time incapable of stopping that from happening? Was it because all of it was true and they couldn't debunk it?
I see your viking name got banned again.

You weren't paying attention. He said he wasn't a Christian. Perhaps I had you distracted with my question about being a good person if I lived according to the Word that God has instilled in my heart.
Why do you have to ask someone outside your faith if following the Bible will make you a good person? Why are you depending on someone who is not a Christian to tell you how to be a good person?

As I said before, Ehrman rarely introduces any new ideas. My response to the two works I briefly read were "Tell us something we don't already know." I doubt this will be any different.

News update:
From Black Hebrew on another thread
"Yeshuah bin Yusef is a real being, not a magical jew-zombie to whom we pray...and he's gonna return."
Am I good, or what?
Sounds like a blast from the past. One of the 'new' sects of Judaism that believes Jesus is the messiah. Oh, well.
