I thought the upside-down Hebrew was the point...Chris
How is your book coming on?
Is this a question for Chris or for me?
I suppose that depends on whether the interpretation should be based on the original intention and whether that intention was adequately reflected in the actual text or can be determined in some other way.
The American thinker has a helpful new review (not the positive tone of my introduction); http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/03/review_of_bart_d_ehrmans_misqu.html(But is the American thinker on the toilet?)
Doh! That should have read: "note the positive tone of my introduction".
This is all rather cryptic.
Blame it on the last week of term.
The paperback edition also includes some new material from Ehrman such as a Q&A in which he further explains his view of Scripture. He clarifies there that it was not his knowledge of textual variation in the Bible that led him to agnosticism, but rather it was the problem of evil. (He also notes that he's working on a book on that very topic.) He says his knowledge of textual criticism changed his view of Scripture, but did not end his faith. His reflection on evil did that.
