Bart Ehrman Blogs About Christianity to Raise Money for Charity

Bart D. Ehrman, James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, has started a new Blog, “Christianity in Antiquity [CIA]: The Bart Ehrman Blog,” at

The Blog includes a public site with postings available to anyone who logs in; most postings, however, will be on the members-only site, which may be joined by paying a subscription fee.

None of the money collected from the site will be lining Prof. Ehrman’s pocket; he is giving all of it away to charities dealing with hunger and homelessness. And so, while the Blog is designed to deal with issues involving the New Testament and early Christianity, its ultimate goal is to raise money for those in need.
