Praise For God's Problem

“Ehrman’s clarity, simplicity, and congeniality help make this a superb introduction to its subject.”
-Booklist

“Ehrman, a prolific and popular author, has put his journey into words in a new book “God’s Problem. ...Ehrman actually ends “God’s Problem” on an upbeat note, a kind of call to arms for people to be good--to themselves and to others...”
-San Diego Tribune

“[An] entrapped invocation of a God who is not believed in, but is nonetheless despised, is what gives the book a rough power. …[Ehrman] is a lucid expositor…”
-The New Yorker
