Listeners will want to enjoy MISQUOTING JESUS with a Bible at hand, so they can review for themselves the countless passages Bart Ehrman indicates were changed through centuries of scribal transcriptions. While most of the book focuses on which passages were changed and why, the beginning and end are personal narratives of how this growing understanding affected Ehrman's faith. Richard Davidson's narration is perfectly suited to both elements of the book. Davidson expresses the shock of the fundamentalist Christian who finds his Holy Book shifting before his eyes. In the middle sections, his tone smoothly changes to one of patient explanation, which is fitting for a review of translation difficulties and analyses of historical contexts.
