The great thing about writing this up as a courtroom drama is that you can present it exactly as it is, the opinions of people.
My text is here:
|Because of his history (not in spite of it), Ehrman writes with understanding and sympathy about what believers take as true about the New Testament, while pulling no punches in taking on the nature of ancient forgery, how it was viewed by scholars and the public during the ancient period, the motivations and intents that might lead to forgery, and so forth. |
That's the cool part. Looking at very old scholarship that wasn't done by sneering atheists.
