Have you ever asked yourself just how did Jesus become God? I admit this isn’t something I’ve thought much about but I became increasingly fascinated by the question as Professor Ehrman lead me through the various paths to divinity that were commonly present in the ancient world. According to Booklist, “Ehrman writes very personally, especially in the beginning, and this approach draws the reader into a subject that is littered with curves and contradictions… This fascinating discussion will engage—and provoke—a wide audience.” I agree with this assessment. The book is both well written and well documented yet is completely accessible to the average person.
