Bart Ehrman: Lost Christianities

Lost Christianities: The Battles for Scripture and the Faiths We Never Knew

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yes, you read that correctly. I gave Bart Ehrman 4 stars out of 5. I also know that Ehrman is a heretic, and he wears that badge proudly on his sleeve. In this book he is also open about his own rejection of orthodox Christianity. I think this book is worth reading because it exposes how insignificant and fanatically sectarian the alleged "lost christianities" really were in the first few centuries. Just don't buy into some of Ehrman's "professional" opinions about orthodox conspiracies to hide the "truth," and this book ends up being a very enjoyable read.
