Book Summary of Truth Matters by Andreas Kostenberger, Darrell Bock, Josh Chatraw


The same scene plays out every semester at college and university campuses around the world. Incoming freshmen walk into the classroom, and they are incapable of defending what they have been taught about God, the Bible, Jesus, and salvation. These incoming freshmen are met with the same arguments year after year:

  • “The Bible was put together to suit an agenda.” (p. xvii)
  • “The Bible is basically a forgery.” (p. xvii)
  • “Your Bible doesn’t contain the real words of God after all.” (p. xviii)
  • “The Bible can’t seem to keep its own story straight.” (p. xviii)
  • “The whole basis of Christianity is in question.” (p. xviii)
  • “God doesn’t care. Maybe God isn’t even there.” (p. xviii)

Dr. Bart Ehrman is one of the leading voices in this attack against traditional Christian beliefs. His writings and popularity have helped these ideas spread across colleges and universities. As a result, even students who never sit in one of Dr. Ehrman’s classes will have to wrestle with the ideas he has written about and popularized.

“If you still want to be standing upright when the pillars of your faith are rocked repeatedly back and forth…then you desperately need the information you’re about to read.” (p. xix)
