The typical Christian probably has never heard of Walter Bauer or Bart Ehrman. But they are representative of an academic stance that maintains a wide influence over popular culture and its misunderstanding of Scripture. Ehrman especially, while citing his opinions as historically grounded, is actually attempting to create a retrospective into a world that, quite frankly, never existed. Because of the way he has been embraced by today's media and academia, this book is both timely and necessary. The authors are to be commended for their rigorous and faithful efforts. We are all in their debt.
