Bart Ehrman Interview Online

I'm about to start reading Misquoting Jesus by Ehrman, after having worked through some audio material on the Historical Jesus.
Ehrman has just published a new book on theodicy and is on NPR in this interview promoting it and discussing the theological problems with both the free will or suffer for your sins ideas from the bible. Also, somewhere in the middle he points out the answer is actually in Job, not the prose bits we think of but the poetry in the middle, the bit that everyone forgets is part of Job and is the ultimate cause of this run-on sentence. The answer? "How dare you question me?"
