"In a book that took eight years to research and write, leading Bible scholar Bart D. Ehrman explores how an apocalyptic prophet from the backwaters of rural Galilee crucified for crimes against the state came to be thought of as equal with the one God Almighty Creator of all things. Ehrman sketches Jesus's transformation from a human prophet to the Son of God exalted to divine status at his resurrection. Only when some of Jesus's followers had visions of him after his death-- alive again-- did anyone come to think that he, the prophet from Galilee, had become God. And what they meant by that was not at all what people mean today" -- dust jacket flap.

Great book - Tells it like it is from the 'historical' discipline. With out the rah rah - Want to know about the Arian Controversy or what Jesus himself claimed (or was recorded) about his divinity? Read this. Good/Great read - just the history ma'am. - I'm still a Christian - Yet this book explains about the early church from the FACTS we have.
