Bart Ehrman

Mon, Mar 21 2011 - 6:00pm

Bart Ehrman

Ph.D., Author, Forged and Jesus, Interrupted

Alan Jones, Dean Emeritus, Grace Cathedral - Moderator

Ehrman takes you on a journey to the ancient world and the forgery battles that have raged through the centuries. Ehrman contends that the New Testament is riddled with contradictions about the life of Jesus and his significance. He has provided compelling evidence that early Christianity was a collection of competing schools of thought and that the central doctrines we know today were the inventions of theologians living several centuries after Christ. Ehrman is a distinguished and prominent religious scholar, and has also appeared on NPR, "The Colbert Report" and "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."
