Ben Witherington on Bart Ehrman's Sensationalist "Forged"

Bart Ehrman continues his lifelong quest to discredit the faith he once claimed to believe in and justify his unbelief in Jesus. See his newest installment Forged: Writing in the Name of God--Why the Bible's Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are. has an article on Ehrman's forgery-thesis here.

Ben Witherington critiques Bart here. For Witherington Ehrman's use of the word "forged" is sensationalist and false. Witherington, as usual, is ridiculously meticulous in his Ehrman review. Witherington doesn't write mere "posts," he writes more "books" and calls them posts.
