A Rational Look at Christianity; Basing Reason in Truth

Daniel Wallace, Th.M., Ph.D., Executive Director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, has recently written an analysis of Bart Ehrman's Misquoting Jesus entitled (appropriately enough) "Review of Bart D. Ehrman, Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why (San Francisco: HarperSanFrancisco, 2005)." I had earlier linked to this article here. A variation of this same article will be appearing in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society.

Dr. Wallace is the co-author of the new book Reinventing Jesus, What The Da Vinci Code And Other Novel Speculations Don't Tell You, a new book for which my fellow-blogger Layman gave his most enthusiastic recommendation here. (I have also read the Reinventing Jesus book and give it my highest recommendation as well. It is an excellent read and a must-have for any apologetics library.)

According to a friend, Friday evening at 5 PM CST, Dr. Wallace will conduct a live interview on Bart Ehrman and textual criticism of the New Testament. Though the program is local in Dallas, TX, anyone can listen live online and there's a toll-free number for those who want to call in with questions. There is a link provided here for listening to the interview.



tbanks for this info. I tend to avoid any book with Dan Vinci Code in the title, no matter who wrote it, but after reading Layman's positive review, it seems I will have to get this. I am frustrated, (as a 'layman' of course) with the pagan parallel theory all over the web. Seeing something in print on this will be welcome.



The "go to" book on the topic of pagan borrowing is The Gospel and the Greeks: Did the New Testament Borrow from Pagan Thought?, by Ronald Nash.

I still highly recommend Reinventing Jesus, though. It gives you a lot about everything.
