Is that just the image you grabbed, or are you actually listening to the audiobook? Seems like that one might be a tougher one, given the content. I mean, it's not terribly details, but even as it is mentioned generally.
I've been meaning to check that out...David Bentley Hart "The New Testament: A Translation"
I'll admit, I'm listening to the audiobook (actually most of my English "reading" nowadays is audiobooks; Chinese books I'll actually read to maintain/improve my reading level).I've been meaning to check that out...
That's just the image I grabbed. I'm reading a real book, not even a "digital" one . I don't like audiobooks and wherever possible much prefer a real book to a Kindle edition.

I haven't, no. Is that what the tv show The Expanse was based on? I remember a bunch of reaction channels starting to watch that a while back.Has anybody read the Expanse series? I was looking for some lighter reading. The Wikipedia article about the first book seems like it is interesting.
I'm not sure, but I think he did write a book about evil and the Bible/Christianity, so maybe that was about the time he broke off from whatever form of Christianity he was part of...?Didn't Ehrman become an atheist a few years ago?

I love him already. I would say that it's one of many cultural idolatries, and because our culture has forgotten God, we are seeing what the new paganism looks like. The god of antiracism, the god of organic food, the god of fitness, the god of veganism, the god of..., on and on, in all directions. Some of us make an idol out of church or the Bible. It's not every person decrying racism, just like not every vegan idolizes their veganism. In any given case, it's a specific, very noisy minority that the media unfortunately latches onto. Ideally, the pushback shouldn't take the form of a broad brush.View attachment 20781
