It is more than a possibility. It is certain that Bart Ehrman misses the point in his new book with an edgy title, a book in which he rehashes tired arguments. He also tells a bad old joke on The Report. Has Ehrman read any biblical criticism and/or scholarship? Perhaps someone could introduce him to His Grace, N.T. Wright. Anyway, his title is enticing: - Jesus Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them). Oh, do tell.

Actually, never mind. If I am jonesing for ideologically-driven second-hand scholarship I think I still have a book or two by John Shelby Spong laying around somewhere.
