Reviews for Plato’s Gift to Christianity

Rodger I. Meinz Ph.D. (Clinical & Consulting Psychology: Seattle WA)

       “Really, Really well done…the quotations by Jesus and Plato split side by side–how powerful! how powerful!.;.a beautiful job…just amazing..the work on the Church Fathers was just extraordinary.”

Jack Dean Kingsbury Th.D. (Retired Aubrey Lee Brooks Professor of Biblical Theology, Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, VA)

         “A very nice job…the portions of most interest to me were the sections on Hellenism, but it was interesting all the way through…the Platonic Jesus and the Platonic New Testament…quite a piece of work…A magnificent job..well done.”

From Book Reviewer Wayne C. Lusvardi

          “Reading Jerry Dell Ehrlich’s book Plato’s Gift to Christianity is likely to be an eye-opening experience. This underrated book is a paradigm shift no less that that found in science by the shift to the Copernican over the Polemaic worldview. Ehrlich sets out to answer a simple fundamental question: “Why, if Jesus and all the disciples were Jewish, is the entire New Testament written in Greek?” And “Why within 100 years of Jesus’s reported religious ministry were all the leaders of the Christian Church Greek speaking?”  Ehrlich’s answers to these questions are compelling…Highly recommended.”

Father John Dolan: “This is a must read for any Christian who wants to understand just how important the Greek speaking nations were to the early Christians and to Jesus himself.”
