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.
-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.
-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!
An honest debunking of Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus"
April 19, 2013
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.
