Kostenberger is one of my favorite New Testament scholars and Darrell Bock ranks pretty high on my list as well, so I sprinted to that session and got myself the free book.Overview Loosely arranged around the ideas Ehrman is popularizing, Truth Matters was written to call high school students and young college students beyond Sunday School platitudes and to equip students, parents, and ministry leaders to think about and respond intelligently and biblically to the most common objections to Christianity.The result: all of the students who had taken a course related to the New Testament or Christian origins at a secular university used a book by Ehrman in the course.Prior to that session it had been announced that the first 300 to arrive would receive a free advanced copy of a forthcoming book by Darrell Bock, Andreas Kostenberger, and Josh Chatraw called Truth Matters: Confident Faith in a Confusing World.This is a good move because of how influential Ehrman and his ideas are, especially in the secular university context.However, even if you have never heard of him, chances are you’ve encountered his ideas through the media, non-Christian friends, etc.I’ve laughed at protesters walking the streets dressed up like zombies. And I’ve joined those protesting in shaking my head in disappointment at what a culture of greed has wrought in our country.
