This study explores how early struggles between Christian heresy and orthodoxy affected orthodox scribes of the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, who occasionally altered their sacred texts for polemical reasons. By making their texts "say" what they were already thought to "mean", these anonymous copyists effected "the orthodox corruption of scripture".

Review:

"In sum, this book is a fine work of scholarship --innovative, judicious, alert, attentive both to its overarching argument and to the supportive details. . . Ehrman's work is provocative and should give rise to further reflection.
