Peter Williams Debates Bart Ehrman On British Radio

As I reported over at the ETC Blog, Bart Ehrman of the University of North Carolina and Peter J Williams of Tyndale House, Cambridge recently appeared on the radio programme "Unbelievable?" hosted by Justin Brierly on Premier Christian radio.

They discussed Bart's best-selling book "Misquoting Jesus" and whether the textual variation and transmission of the New Testament Documents is as bad as the book makes out. They also discussed what impact this has for a Christan view of the Bible's authority.

You can listen back to it online in the programme archive at Alternatively you can click the "download the podcast" option to get the MP3 or subscribe in itunes. For a quick click and listen page go to Denny Burke's blog.

A future interview will include Bart Ehrman and Richard Swinburne on the problem of evil. And next Monday, James Crossley and I are going down to London to do something similar with Premier Christian Radio in reference to our book, "How Did Christianity Begin?"

I'm neither a spelling-bee champion nor the son of a spelling-bee champion, but I do have a correction for you. My last name is spelled Burk (without and "e" on the end).

P.S. Unless you changed your name to "Michael Bid," you have spelled your own last name incorrectly in the comments section of my blog:

P.P.S. In case I sound like an insufferable prig, you should know that I spelled "infinitive" incorrectly on the title page of the defense draft of my dissertation. :)

Ha! I spelled "an" incorrectly! Very impressive.
