Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman

På nattbordet har jeg for tiden den fascinerende boken «Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why» av Bart Ehrman:

Bart D. Ehrman is a New Testament scholar, textual critic, and an expert on early Christianity. He attempts to discern, as nearly as possible, the original wording of the gospels, epistles, and other ancient texts. He champions the thesis that early Christians, as they developed a single, orthodox doctrine, altered the Biblical texts in order to make them more uniform and bring them into line with changing beliefs.
