Ehrman interview

I think I’ve made it clear that I’m not the biggest Bart Ehrman fan on the planet. Nonetheless, if you want to understand how many non-Christian scholars read and understand the Bible, you can’t find a much better starting point. NPR yesterday had a nice 40 min. interview with Ehrman focusing on his most recent book, Jesus Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don’t Know about Them). The title pretty much says it all. Nonetheless, the interview gives you an interesting look at who Ehrman is, how he thinks, and how he (and many others) view the Bible. Unlike most people who criticize the Bible for its many contradictions, though, Ehrman has at least read it, and read it thoroughly. If you have a spare half hour, it is well worth a listen.
