Dr. Bart Ehrman – Great Controversies in Christianity
The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Series
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, I’m Paul Vogelzang and this is episode #378. It’s great to be back with you all, and thanks for all the warm wishes, welcoming my son, Avery home! We appreciate it. We’re back with another great segment today, and as part of our Smithsonian Associates author interview series, we are joined today by author, historian, Christianity scholar, and expert on Jesus Christ and the New Testament, Dr. Bart Ehrman. Dr. Bart Ehrmanwill be appearing at the Smithsonian Associates program, September 7, 2019, and the title of his presentation is More Great Controversies in Early Christianity: Bart Ehrman Ponders Four New Questions.
Scholars of the New Testament and early Christianity continue to debate a number of crucial issues that matter not only to people of faith but also to anyone interested in the history of early Christianity and the world’s largest religion. Following the success of last year’s “great controversies” seminar, Bart Ehrman, a leading authority on early Christianity, the New Testament, and the life of Jesus, returns to explore four more intriguing questions.
On today’s show, we talk all things Christianity with Dr. Bart Ehrman, because Christianity has arguably been the most important force in the history of Western civilization. Whether we view it in religious, social, political, or economic terms, Christianity has deeply and integrally influenced the Western worldview and way of life, as well as our most basic notions of selfhood, morality, and ethics. Without the presence and role of Christianity, our world would be considerably different. As such, understanding Christianity is fundamental to understanding our civilization, our culture, and our origins.
Please join me in welcoming back to The Not Old Better Show, Dr. Bart Ehrman, who will be appearing at the Smithsonian Associates program, Sept. 7, 2019, and the title of his presentation is More Great Controversies in Early Christianity: Bart Ehrman Ponders Four New Questions.
