  • In "Forged", Bart takes the next step in arguing that there is deliberate fraud going on in the canon, deceitful practices undertaken to convince or bamboozle some audience into believing something, on the basis of the authority of some apostle or original disciple, who in fact did not write the book in question.–Ben Witherington

  • While Ehrman's provocative thesis in his book "Jesus: Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium" will stir up controversy among scholars, his warm, inviting prose style and his easy-to-read historical and critical overviews make this the single best introduction to the study of the historical Jesus.–Publishers Weekly

  • "Jesus, Interrupted" is a special book. It is not a rant, nor a screed. It is a careful, scholarly, and considerate review of what is either known, or reasonably conjectured, about the amazing book called the Bible. If this biblical authenticity is of interest you - Jesus Interrupted is a must read.–Daniel Murphy

  • Ehrman, a prolific and popular author, has put his journey into words in a new book "God’s Problem. ...Ehrman actually ends "God’s Problem" on an upbeat note, a kind of call to arms for people to be good -- to themselves and to others...–San Diego Tribune

  • Ehrman and Plese have done a great service to students of ancient Christian texts and languages. This volume [The Apocryphal Gospels] is sure to be enthusiastically received into both personal libraries and university syllabi.–Library Journal
