Details

The earliest surviving accounts of Jesus’ life date from several decades after his death, and their reliability has been questioned. Ehrman brings a fresh approach to the study of the Gospels, drawing on research, by anthropologists, sociologists and psychologists, which examines how memory is distorted and how stories change within oral traditions. He argues that the Gospels form ‘shared memories of the past’ that reveal how the early Christians’ beliefs about Jesus were shaped by the world in which they lived. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
