Boy am I tired of getting questions on Bart Ehrman’s stuff. Put simply, Bart is a fundamentalist, someone for whom his pet subjects only have two answers: his and the one he wants to caricature. Bart sees no gray areas; tolerates no nuancing of questions and responses to those questions. It’s just fundamentalism with a PhD and, sadly, a damaged heart due to personal tragedy (which is what really drives all this).

I got another “what about Bart?” question tonight, so I decided to blog my response. The question was “What should I think about Bart Ehrman’s book, Jesus Interrupted?” Fortunately, New Testament scholar Ben Witherington has been on this book (and other Bart Ehrman material) for some time. ┬áHere is his response to Jesus Interrupted: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.
