Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why

Good review of this book that is quite popular. Much of what Bart Ehrman says is textual criticism 101. It's his later arguments that the Bible, as we have it, is corrupted and some of our theology is suspect where his arguments sink. My main problem with this type of book is that it makes dramatic statements concerning very technical issues in textual criticism that most people cannot understand. There has been alot of criticism of this book, but the average reader will never know about these serious scholarly issues.

Read the review.
