Many of you know that Bart Ehrman has made something of a small fortune on arguing that early scribes “corrupted” the transmission of the Greek New Testament by making “orthodox corrections” [read: changes that reflected orthodox predilections about Jesus] during the process. Since Ehrman seems unable to avoid a television camera, his views have made their way into the popular culture, with the result that non-specialists assume all his claims are right and that his arguments cannot be overturned. Neither is the case. I’ve posted some critiques of Ehrman before (here and over on PaleoBabble), so news of this new book, edited by New Testament textual critic Dan Wallace, is germane for those interested: Revisiting the Corruption of the New Testament.  The link leads to the ETC blog, which has a link to purchase it. All that said, the essays are technical, and so those new to NT textual criticism might be better off beginning with an introduction to the discipline, such as one of these:
