       A non-Christian perspective on the history of Jesus

In a book that took eight years to research and write, historian and Bible scholar Bart D. Ehrman explores how an apocalyptic prophet from 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. According to his research, it was only when some of Jesus's followers had visions of him alive again after his death 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.

As a historian - not a believer - Ehrman answers the questions: How did this transformation of Jesus occur? How did he move from being a Jewish prophet to being God? The dramatic shifts throughout history reveal not only why Jesus's followers began to claim he was God, but also how they came to understand this claim in so many different ways.

Written for secular historians of religion and believers alike, How Jesus Became God will engage anyone interested in conversations concerning historical developments that led to the affirmation at the heart of Christianity: Jesus was, and is, God.

The publisher allowed Evangelical New Testament scholars Michael Bird, Craig Evans, Simon Gathercole, Charles Hill, and Chris Tilling to read Ehrman's manuscript in order to write a thoughtful and reasoned response, How God Became Jesus: The Real Origins of Belief in Jesus' Divine Nature. Slightly Imperfect.
