Ehrman 'debunks' the Bible

Or so says CNN, talking about "Jesus, Interrupted." ( http://www.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/05/15/bible.critic/index.html )

For those of you not familiar with Ehrman, check out my review of his book, "Misquoting Jesus." It says much of what I would say in response to the CNN article. You will notice I mention the Greer/Heard Ehrman-Wallace debate. Mr. Ehrman's contentions are handled superbly, and it is worth buying the MP3 download of the debate if the issue truly interests you.
What it striking is that when Ehrman is confronted by able apologists, he backs off and says he is not trying to debunk the Bible, he is just being honest with the evidence. However, in the public realm, he has played a much more sensational game. If you listen to the Ehrman-Wallace debate, you will see what I mean.
