"In FORGED New York Times bestselling author, Bart Ehrman, reveals another hidden scandal of the Bible. For centuries, scholars have known that not all of the books in the New Testament are authentic while the general public has been blissfully unaware. The books of the New Testament are widely assumed to be written accounts of Jesus's life by those who knew him best. However, if the Gospels and letters were not written by memebers of Jesus's inner circle--but by later writers with differing agendas in rival communitites--then the authority of the Bible collapses. Based on new, original research, Ehrman takes the reader on a journey to the ancient world and the forgery battles that raged throughout the Roman Empire. The popular myth is that "writing in the name of another" was a common, accepted practice in antiquity. Not so argues Ehrman. Forgery was as scandalous then as it is now. And yet, at a time when all documents and letters where copied by hand and circulated freely with little or no authorial control, identifying who actually penned a piece of writing-be it political, historical, or religious-was fraught with uncertainty. FORGED exposes the forged letters written in the name of Jesus's disciples for the expressed purpose of gaining acceptance in the early church...which is exactly what happened and why we have the Bible we read today"--… (lisätietoja)

Once again, Ehrman demolishes any excuse anyone has for believing in the veracity of the bible. He shows conclusively that many of the books are not written by who they claim to be written by--and the evidence is plain to see, such as direct contradictions between books supposed to be written by the same person. Not to mention that textual analysis shows it was a different author, and so on. Folks with various agenda throughout the last two millennia have forged religious texts, and some were accepted into the New Testament. Ehrman also tells interesting stories about the four gospels--most notably that they weren't even called Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John until decades after the were first written and circulated. Those names were applied to tie them to the apostles and give them more authority. I could go on, but I don't want to emulate Ehrman too much, since his worst habit, in his attempt to explain everything as clearly as possible, is to go on a bit too long. I will say that the audiobook is well read by Walter Dixon. ( )

Bart D. Ehrman is an accomplished and eminent scholar of biblical criticism. He is one of those "liberal" thinkers who has been able to get past the fiction that Jesus was a god, but not the contrivance that he was a man. In Forged Ehrman treats the subject of authorial mendacity in early Christian literature, not excepting the New Testament canon. As he demonstrates, there are scores of ancient Christian texts whose authors willfully misrepresent their identities, and are thus forgeries. He does carefully distinguish such forgery from false or merely erroneous attributions, all of which have been lumped customarily into the category of "pseudepigraphal" writings.

Ehrman importantly addresses the widespread misconceptions that the ancient world somehow possessed a more benign view of literary forgery, falsification, and plagiarism. As he shows, there are ancient writings which remonstrate against these practices. Just like modern readers, those of antiquity expected authors to represent themselves accurately in their texts.

In the final chapter of the book, Ehrman even jumps forward to the modern period with three examples of Christian pseudepigrapha from the 19th century, to demonstrate that the behavior we see in writings from early Christianity isn't alien to the sort of forgeries that have been created in later ages.

Forgery holds out as an "irony" the contrast between the stated ideal of Christianity in communicating divinely-ordained truth and the actual literary practices of the authors of Christian scripture. In his recurring discussions of motive, Ehrman tends to gloss over the obvious possibility that many, perhaps most, of these writers were in fact not sincere as they tampered with the facts in order to promote their preferred sects and doctrines.

While informed by extensive research and supplying references for further study, Forged is itself a popularizing rather than a scholarly book. It is a fast read and a valuable orientation to the realities of biblical authorship in the Christian world.

I found this a fascinating book and really loved it. Much of it was new to me when I started, but for some reason, I set it aside for awhile while I read other books. And some of these other books went on to assert some of the same things I found Ehrman referring to when I later picked up the book to finish. That doesn't diminish the research or quality of the material, but it does mean some of it isn't as "original" as I had previously thought, which is the reason I've knocked it down from five stars to four. Still, if you want to learn the "real" story of many of the books of the Bible, particularly the New Testament, when they were actually written, who did and did not actually author so many of the books, this is an excellent source. Definitely recommended. ( )

I second what's been previously said - that I was a bit hesitant to pick up this book at first. I've read [b:Misquoting Jesus|51364|Misquoting Jesus The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible & Why|Bart D. Ehrman|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1170379100s/51364.jpg|50128] and [b:Jesus Interrupted|6101996|Jesus, Interrupted Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible & Why We Don't Know About Them|Bart D. Ehrman|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1255645385s/6101996.jpg|6279259] and was a bit concerned that this book would just be rehashing the old information. Fortunately, I was very wrong.

I'm a great fan of Ehrman's style regardless of what he's writing. I find him to be far more respectful in his discourse than some of the better known atheistic authors (Hitchens, Dawkins, etc.) and he tends to be more focused upon bringing this information to light than outright saying that Christian's are wrong. He's about knowledge, and I can respect that.

The book deals with how forgery was viewed in the ancient world, and whether or not it is correct to call some of the New Testament books (and Old Testament books, actually) forgeries. He goes into the different definitions of forgeries, misattributions, fabrications, and the like as well as acknowledging both ancient and modern forged 'biblical' texts. Only at the very end does he summarize what has been previously stated by him in other books.

All in all, a very informative, very well researched book. Highly recommended. ( )

Dr. Ehrman is a controversial religion scholar specializing in biblical analysis and history. His books are careful studies in the origins of the Christian faith and the original sources and changes to Christian history as seen in the current canon.

Ehrman is frequently criticized by conservative theologians for not accepting the "inerrancy" of scripture as relied upon by Christian pastors and congregations. What Ehrman shows in his many books is the inerrancy of relying on the "inerrancy" of scripture. While discomforting to some, Ehrman tells his readers what conservative Christianity does not teach and does not want its followers to understand. His references and documentation are extensive and he tells it "like it is" rather than how many like to understand it. Recommended for open minded persons only. ( )
