Product Description

One of the problems of living in a non-discerning culture is the fact that everything gets put on the same level. Christian books share the same 'Religion' shelf with anti-Christian and cultic material. Such is the situation where books like Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus can gain a foothold and credence with readers. Published by a popular secular publishing house, Ehrman gets no true peer review for his writings.
Strangely enough, Timothy Paul Jones' welcomes this, and his book, although a thorough and deep refutation of Ehrman's faulty logic and conclusions, rather takes the tack of lauding Ehrman for creating something that encourages ordinary people to think about faith in critical ways. Jones seeks to give individuals the rest of the story Ehrman started to tell.
Adequately countering the criticisms Ehrman levels at Christianity in his books, Misquoting Truth goes back to the faulty premises, dismantles them and rebuilds them with fact rather than speculation, then supports the historical faith with humor, warmth and solid analytical investigation.

Endorsements

In recent years, Christians have been assailed by a book genre that is increasingly critical of Christian beliefs. Misquoting Truth reminds us that this critical alarm is often sounded in bombastic ways that seldom present the whole picture. Timothy Jones explains why there is no new information in Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus that threatens what Christians believe about the New Testament text. Further, he moves the discussion to a shelf where it is accessible to everyone. Numerous practical teaching pointers help the reader to digest the material. The result is a well-integrated volume that accomplishes what few books do: disarming the critics while at the same time connecting with a large range of readers. Bravo, InterVarsity, for publishing yet another excellent volume that communicates crucial truth to this generation!
-Gary R. Habermas,
Liberty University

The most radical wing of New Testament scholarship has gotten a disproportionate amount of press in recent years. As representative as any of this trend today is Bart Ehrman, whose books on textual criticism and noncanonical Gospels make it sound as if we have little idea what the New Testament authors originally wrote or little reason to believe that theirs was an accurate, and certainly the oldest, rendition of the life of Jesus and the gospel message. Timothy Jones sets the record straight in this courteous but direct critique of charges about misquoting Jesus and alternate or lost Christianities. Abreast of all the latest and best scholarship, he nevertheless writes in a straightforward, easy-to-read style that any thoughtful layperson can handle. An absolute must-read for anyone confused or taken in by the revisionist biblical historians of our day.
-Craig L. Blomberg,
Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

In Misquoting Truth, Timothy Paul Jones gives Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus and Lost Christianities the debunking they deserve. Jones exposes the bias and faulty logic that surface time and again in these highly publicized books. Misquoting Truth provides a much needed antidote and will serve students and Christian leaders very well. I recommend this book enthusiastically.
-Craig A. Evans,
Payzant Distinguished Professor, Acadia Divinity College

In Misquoting Truth, Timothy Paul Jones has written an informative, creative book that needs to be read by all serious, thinking Christians. It is as informative as it is entertaining, and it will provide a secure foundation for continuing to trust in the accuracy of God's Word. It answers the basic criticisms leveled at the New Testament by Dr. Bart Ehrman, while at the same time providing a proper understanding of the basics of textual criticism. Jones does not skirt the difficult issues, but deals with them head-on, providing careful and balanced answers. I highly recommend this book to those seeking to find answers to the question, 'Can the Word of God be trusted?'
-Paul D. Wegner, Ph.D.,
Phoenix Seminary

Timothy Paul Jones turns the tables on Bart Ehrman's overstated Misquoting Jesus. He applies to Ehrman the same probing logic that Ehrman claims to apply to the New Testament evidence. The evidence turns out to be more believable than Ehrman's strained interpretations of it. It is not the New Testament writers or copyists who depart from history, Jones shows, but a few scholars who invest too much faith in their skepticism. Jones not only checks that skepticism: along the way he equips readers to make their own informed choices about authorship, scribal transmission, and church selection (or rejection) of key New Testament passages and documents--and many writings from outside the New Testament as well. This is a valuable primer for orientation in a discussion that cannot be ignored.
-Robert Yarbrough,
Associate Professor of New Testament and New Testament Department Chair, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Dr. Jones has written a first-rate book on an essential and timely subject. Both specialists and nonspecialists will benefit from his honest, polite and clearly explained treatment of issues concerning the reliability of the New Testament text and its authorship. In a day of confusion among non-Christians and Christians alike, this is a must-read.
-Peter Jones,
Scholar-in-Residence, Westminster Seminary California

Dr. Jones reminds us that Christians should never be afraid of open debate. With tradition, experience, reason and Scripture as our final measure we can put all ideas on the table with confidence that in the end we will embrace what is true and discard what is false.
-Everett Piper, Ph.D.,
President, Oklahoma Wesleyan University

Among many antifaith books you may find Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why. This is a broadside attack upon the Scriptures, and Christians need to be able to rebut it. Thankfully, Dr. Timothy Paul Jones has written Misquoting Truth, a scholarly and gracious (but firm) rebuttal to Dr. Ehrman.
-D. James Kennedy, Ph.D.,
Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

    excellent book for the price. so much has been made of Ehrmans supposedly devastating arguments against the authenticity and trustworthiness of the Bible. This book takes each of his major arguments and clearly and convincingly reduces them to the biased, presumptuous arguments that they are. Great weapon for those witnessing to current or recent college graduates that ran into these claims while in school. Can't recommend it enough

    This is about the 3-4th book I own that claims to refute Bart Ehrman's work. This book is the only one I have finish because the others were written by technical-minded textual critics. If you have ever taken an advanced accounting course, you are aware how CPA's like texual critics forget how to communicate in everyday terms. Not this book. It is a fast read and quite understandable.

    Pros:

    -Concise, effective & informative

    -Strong apologetics arguments

    -Favorite part is that Author encourages that you open your Bible and follow the chapter that discusses Erhman's controversial passages. Needless to say, the ESV stood the test--not one point, let me repeat, not one contention causes any doctrinal concern.

    Con:

    -In dating the Gospels, the author concedes a later dating. Still effective, but most active and world renown apologists such was W.L. Craig, Norman Giesler, Frank Turek, Greg Koukl effectively argue for an early dating of the Gospels.

    This was fabulous - a brilliantly presented debunking of Bart Ehrman's poorly thought-out MISQUOTING JESUS and Ehrman's basic apostasy regarding Jesus and His Word. Jones answers very specific and legitimate questions regarding the Book of all books! Well researched and extremely readable presentation. Thanks for a great book!

    Jones systematically dismantles Bart Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus". In total honesty Jones indicates where Ehrman's thesis is correct but then exposes where Ehrman embellishes the truth and is scholastically dishonest to the NT texts and what they tell us about Jesus and the early church. Well written and well balanced.
