Far from springing full and complete into widespread publication the day after Pentecost, the New Testament evolved over several hundred years following Jesus's death. So what texts and teachings governed early Christianity? Dr. Bart Ehrman explores these questions, covering early writings, cults, and cultures. Dr. Ehrman's many awards are clearly justified if this course is any indication of his lecturing style and thorough research. While covering details of history and the evolution of theological doctrine, he presents the material in a conversational, yet respectful tone. Dr. Ehrman discusses the material, rather than feeding it to us. Even without the accompanying written course guides, the presentation and its lessons linger long. R.P.L.
