comment Bart D. Ehrman - respected critic?
I appreciate the fair and balanced review. The important point here is to distinguish between textual criticism and theology of scripture. It appears that he is excellent with the former while letting his biases creep in to the latter. It also seems that he neglects to take care to delineate the two in his popular works, potentially misleading many readers.

comment What is “the gift of God” in Eph 2:8
It occurred to me after writing the question that "grace" and "gift" are likely the same word in Greek--χάρις. But, I just looked it up, and it's not. The far less-common word for "gift" used here is δῶρον, with χάριτί for "grace". I'm not well-enough informed to form a solid argument about what that implies, but I do think it lends support to rejects the first option ("it"=="grace")
