Review quote

"Ehrman has contributed a thorough, complete, and carefully devised introduction to the field of study . . . an accurate, yet nuanced, synthesis of the central issues in New Testament studies. The defining characteristic of A Brief Introduction is the degree of energy and imagination it invests in pedagogical sophistication. Perhaps no critical and historical introduction to the New Testament has ever been more "student friendly." Besides its wholesale investment in pedagogical sophistication, perhaps the greatest strength of the "Ehrman" method of New Testament introduction as a whole is its ability to introduce nascent Christianity in terms of where it had come from in its origins while also pointing toward what it would become in later centuries." -- C.D. Elledge, Gustavus Adolphus College, for Review of Biblical Literature"An articulate and penetrating view into the background and texts of the New Testament."--Marianne Ferguson, Buffalo State College "Ehrman has contributed a thorough, complete, and carefully devised introduction to the field of study . . . an accurate, yet nuanced, synthesis of the central issues in New Testament studies.
