The Ehrman Project - Explaining not Attacking

Categories Theology

I have to admit when I first heard about a project to address the works of Bart Ehrman I was a bit wary. There are more than enough attack blogs out there. The vitriol from them isn’t helping to do anything but shut down real dialogue, and make those who already agree with the blogger feel more secure in their rightness. 

The Ehrman Project isn’t like that though. It’s not about attacking professor Ehrman, in fact it’s quite complementary towards him as a person and a scholar. Instead it offers a counterpoint to the influential arguments that Ehrman has presented about textual criticism, the history of the Church, and the problem of evil.

Scholars such as D.A. Carson, Alvin Plantinga, and Ben Witherington have contributed videos and texts that take these issues and present another way of looking at them, a way that leads to very different conclusions than we find in a book like Jesus, Interrupted. The videos that I’ve watched so far have been thoughtful and very professionally done.

A good example is the video about manuscript evidence by Daniel Wallace, author of Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics. Watch it below and then, if you’re interested in hearing more, check out the rest at
