Website responding to Bart Ehrman


Bart Ehrman in the past few years has been writing popular-level books that seem to discredit Christianity. From claiming to suspect the historical reliability of the New Testament to questioning the existent of God based on the problem of evil, Ehrman has his latest book coming out in two months time. The title is as unsurprising as it can be: Forged: Writing in the Name of God--Why the Bible's Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are.

Ehrman's project has been challenged and criticized by various colleagues of his in the New Testament guild. Yet these criticisms are scattered all over the cyberspace.

Now, here is a website that contains responses from various scholars, from philosopher to New Testament scholars, to engage Ehrman's theses. The website is aptly titled Ehrman Project (H/T: A Chorus of Echoes).

thank you for this, bro! I think it's a very nicely consolidated resource.

in video form too, for those of us who find reading a book for more than 5 min a challenge(especially if it is of the PCC or CE kind) HAHA.

Hi Nat,

I'm glad that someone actually create this website. It's really a good resource center that engages Ehrman's works. :)
