Bart Ehrman has sold a lot of books by spreading doubt about the textual reliability of the New Testament. Many Christian scholars – such as Daniel B. Wallace and Craig A. Evans – have refuted his arguments.

These have been employed by Wallace and Evans, but also by a number of others. In the list below, I’m including scholars who have spoken directly, and sometimes extensively, to this point.
