I'm also reading The subject book by Bart Erhman simultaneously, so was a great help to find Kouki's book at the same time.
It seems in seeking the facts of the matter, we must treat the surviving literature and its offshoots as a population rather than clinging to a single version in using The Book for our guidance in life
Understanding the meaning of the original words benefits from having many reproductions of the original. This is similar to trying to find a reliable estimate of the truth, or central value, from a distribution of samples-- estimating a mean from a large sample rather than a small one. The larger the sample, the more the errors and extremes cancel out, so the estimate of the facts from the large sample has less variance and is a more reliable view of what actually happened.
As I have pointed out to my students in statistics: isn't it wonderful that God so designed the World that we are able to- by dilligent, thorough and unbiased study-- arrive at such a closer estimation of the truth with higher confidence because we looked at the subject from more viewpoints(samples).
Truly, "The 'n's justify the 'means.'"

compares the evidence surrounding the New Testament against evidence used for other great works. Considers how errors may have crept into the Bible but are easily observed and corrected. Very well done.

No real facts. No real argument. Not worth the time. I just would have expected more work to counter the scholarship of Dr Ehrman.

This simple, 13-page note is a typical dismissal of another's years of research, study and exploration by someone who does not know their own church's histor(ies). This booklet is hardly worth even reading for entertainment, though it does attempt to address Dr. Ehrman's book, MISQUOTING JESUS. No one knows for certain what happened in those early days of the 1st Century, but to try to make a buck piggy-backing on a published scholarly authorship is to be nothing more than a pest. Gregory's devotional is easily dismissed as a book-flea. The description of this chick tract even spells Dr. Ehrman's first name wrong. Poor study, poor writing, and a poor way to spend 10 minutes.

Reading this attempt by Greg Koukl to "debate" Dr. Erhman as to the merits of the latter's arguments expressed in his book "Misquoting Jesus" is somewhat akin to watching Kent Hovind (a/k/a Dr. Dino) debate Albert Einstein on physics. Had I been able to not "check" any of the 5 rating stars, I would certainly have done so.

I urge the reader to spend what precious time there is reading anything but the jejune and ridiculous assertions contained in all of Mr. Koukl's works. There are numerous thoughtful and intellectually honest works to enjoy and from which to learn rather than reading the meanderings of an obviously uneducated (at least, when it comes to Biblical Scholarship)radio talk show host who tries to appear to be a Bibilcal scholar/expert only to fail miserably.

The problem with the author's early rationale (Aunt Sally's recipe) is that Aunt Sally was reconstructing her original recipe from copies but the bible has not been reconstructed by the original authors. Indeed, we don't even know who wrote most of the bible. Even though the bible has been modified many times over the years to reflect the church's doctrines (and it is still going on) - many glaring contradictions still exist

Other reviews have a much more in-depth analysis, but I will echo some comments that this was a poor riposte to a well-researched and developed book by Erhman. The examples given are vague and not conclusive, and he cites the opinions of "experts" without citing the facts that those experts used to form their opinions. I'm a christian who doesn't believe that the infallibility of the bible is a requisite of faith or salvation, so I'd like to think that I'm open to any well-researched and thought-out arguments on either side. I was actually looking forward to a logical discussion from the other side, this just wasn't it. At least it is a short read.

really just a paper that says we can figure out what scriptures say because of volume of copies. truely not a disputation of ehrmans information.
