Professor Bart D. Ehrman joined the American Freethought Podcast, hosted by John C. Snider & David Driscoll whose studio is converged in Atlanta, as a guest speaker on March 1st, 2016.
The hosts interviewed Bart D. Ehrman about his new book Jesus Before the Gospels: How the Earliest Christians Remembered, Changed, and Invented Their Stories of the Savior. Dr. Ehrman looks at what research on memory–how it’s formed, how it’s recalled, how it can change when transmitted from person to person, and how it can be remolded based on historical perspective and current events–and what it can tell us about how the written accounts of Jesus’ life were created.
Jesus Before the Gospels is available in hardcover, audiobook and for Kindle.
The purpose of American Freethought is to serve freethinkers of every stripe: atheists, agnostics, skeptics, secular humanists, brights, rationalists, or whatever association one might deem themselves.
