Ben Witherington on Jesus, Interrupted

Ben Witherington III, Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Asbury Seminary in Kentucky, is reviewing Bart Ehrman's new book, Jesus, Interrupted.

Ehrman is a graduate of Wheaton College who has since lost his faith. He is now chair of the Religion Department at UNC Chapel Hill. He has written several books on the New Testament and the Historical Jesus targeted at popular audiences. Ehrman admits that his arguments are nothing new. He just wants the public to know what convervative scholarship "ignores."

Dr. Witherington is a top evangelical New Testament scholar, and his critique of Eherman is fair and informed.
