About this title

Synopsis:

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. I believe it will make a significant contribution to scholarship in both New Testament and early Christian history for a long time to come." --Church History"This detailed, carefully argued, and thoroughly documented study should be purchased for collections serving faculty and graduate students in New Testament studies and church history."--Choice"Written in a clear and interesting style."--The Princeton Seminary Bulletin"Ehrman's study is well written....This book will be useful for senior seminars and beginning graduate students."--The Journal of Religion"Ehrman's is a good book, and one which deserves the attention of scholars"--Reviews in Religion and Theology"[Ehrman's] arguments throughout deserve our att "This detailed, carefully argued, and thoroughly documented study should be purchased for collections serving faculty and graduate students in New Testament studies and church history."--Choice"Written in a clear and interesting style."--The Princeton Seminary Bulletin"Ehrman's study is well written....This book will be useful for senior seminars and beginning graduate students."--The Journal of Religion"Ehrman's is a good book, and one which deserves the attention of scholars"--Reviews in Religion and Theology"[Ehrman's] arguments throughout deserve our attention; they are frequently compelling....Clearly set out and persuasively presented....Variants that treat of Christ's person and function must from now on always be considered with reference to Ehrman's thesis."--Novum Testamentum"This book is highly recommended as an excellent work of scholarship that is of great importance in the development of New Testament studies.
