Bart D. Ehrman is a New Testament scholar and Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has written many popular books on textual criticism and other Biblical matters, including:

  • Jesus: Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium (1999)
  • The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings (2003)
  • Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why (2005)
  • God's Problem: How the Bible Fails to Answer Our Most Important Question—Why We Suffer (2008)
  • Lost Christianities: The Battles for Scripture and the Faiths We Never Knew (2003)
  • Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them) (2009)

Ehrman became an Evangelical Christian as a teen but lost his faith after careful study of the Bible itself. He now identifies himself an agnostic.[1]


"When you read Bart Ehrman, be sure to get a Bible that has margin notes or foot notes, so that you can confirm what he is describing is in the Bible. If you can find a Bible with translator notes, they will confirm what he is saying, because a lot of people of trashed Ehrman's reputation because he has come out publicly to say what Bible scholars have known for a hundred years.[2]"

Richard Carrier has disputed much of the content of Did Jesus Exist?[3] although he recommends Jesus, Interrupted as the best introduction to the New Testament.[4]
