About this title:

Synopsis: Bart D. Ehrman, bestselling author of Misquoting Jesus and one of the most renowned and controversial Bible scholars in the world today, examines oral tradition and its role in shaping the stories about Jesus we encounter in the New Testament--and ultimately in our understanding of Christianity.Throughout much of human history, our most important stories were passed down orally--including the stories about Jesus before they became written down in the Gospels. In this fascinating and deeply researched work, leading Bible scholar Bart D. Erhman investigates the role oral history has played in the New Testament--how the telling of these stories not only spread Jesus' message but helped shape it.A master explainer of Christian history, texts, and traditions, Ehrman draws on a range of disciplines, including psychology and anthropology, to examine the role of memory in the creation of the Gospels. Explaining how oral tradition evolves based on the latest scientific research, he demonstrates how the act of telling and retelling impacts the story, the storyteller, and the listener--crucial insights that challenge our typical historical understanding of the silent period between when Jesus lived and died and when his stories began to be written down.As he did in his previous books on religious scholarship, Ehrman combines his deep knowledge and meticulous scholarship in a compelling and eye-opening narrative that will change the way we read and think about these sacred texts.

About the Author:

Bart D. Ehrman is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1988, after four years of teaching at Rutgers University, he came to Chapel Hill, where he has served as both the Director of Graduate Studies and the Chair of the Department of Religious Studies. Among his fields of scholarly expertise are the historical Jesus, the early Christian apocrypha, the apostolic fathers, and the manuscript tradition of the New Testament. He has published extensively in these fields, having written or edited over twenty books, numerous scholarly articles, and dozens of book reviews. Professor Ehrman is married with two children, a daughter and a son, and lives in Durham, North Carolina.
