The 27 books of the New Testament are arguably the most important documents in Western civilization, but what do we really know about them, their writers, their audience, and the historical traditions out of which they grew? A gifted lecturer, Ehrman draws from all the critical sources available and examines each of these areas. He scrupulously brackets questions of faith and doctrine to focus instead on historical and textual problems. Thus, his lectures draw their energy from a depth of study, not passion or polemic. Even for the uninitiated, they're easy but exciting to follow, with a written outline, biographical notes, and an extensive bibliography accompanying each. P.E.F.
