  • I would be interested in hearing your thoughts about the Erhman project. I have not read Erhman’s books nor listened to the lectures, but I’m wondering what the controversy is all about after my husband sent me a link to this site that he heard about via the university. What would be the differences between Erhman’s work and say, Stark’s work (again, I’m completely uneducated here, not having read either).

      I’m still in the process of judging Ehrman and the Ehrman project. But, my initial feelings are that people who are interested in the subject of the textual integrity of the Bible need to listen to all sides and make informed decisions. Ehrman has been criticized for speaking outside his area of expertise and I also find his anger more than a little disconcerting. Comparing Stark to Ehrman: Stark can come across a little abrasive at times but I don’t think there is an easy way to talk about the topics he does. Ehrman can come across as “out to destroy the faith.” I’d really like to get to know Ehrman personally before I could judge if this is his agenda or not.

  • ps. I’m glad I listend to this podcast, because I was really confused by the first link at first!
