another Ehrman gem
I love the writing of this american theologian. He frequently uses a witty tone to lighten what could be heavy material. He is able to present a wealth of information in a scholarly fashion and yet he never makes you feel you are listening to a lecture. It always seems more like a good story. I'm looking forward to his next book.

Interesting enough for a second listening
The first part of this book, on Peter, did not excite me, but the last two parts, on Paul and Mary Magdalene were enthralling. Having read numerous studies of the New Testament, I am no beginner but I still found myself learning a lot from this scholarly but user-friendly discussion. I plan to listen to the book again after I finish the book I bought immediately after hearing this one---another one by Ehrman. I want to hear more of what he has to say as I find that he has done his homework (he translated the New Testament himself from the old documents) and his judgment is fair.
