This article from the Washington Post is about Bart Ehrman. There is a cold emptiness in the story of how he lost his faith, made more grievous by the fact that it happened even as he was digging deeper into the original language manuscripts of the New Testament.
The Post makes mountains out of textual molehills in their coverage, but I don't blame them per-se--they're not Biblical scholars, so they can't be expected to realize what is significant or not. I'm guessing they are relaying what they've been fed, though in my estimation they've way overplayed their "noble skeptic" angle.
And as bitter icing for this distressing tale, we have Simon, whom we last saw discussing the Gospel, using this as yet another justification for his own rejection of God. (He gets the Hat Tip on the Ehrman article, BTW).
Dan Phillips has posted his take on the Ehrman article at Pyro. As a bonus, he also includes a link to a piece he wrote awhile back: How To Make Your Very Own Jesus (including the blink command if you use Firefox.)
