I think that many if not most Christians understand and accept the fact that much of the New Testament was not written by the people who were assumed to be the authors, especially in the case of the Gospels. This fact has been pretty well established by others. Though I found Ehrman's premise to be interesting in many cases, the book did become repetitive and somewhat boring. The fault of this book lies in the fact that he throws out the baby with the bathwater; the wisdom contained in many of the biblical writings, even the "forged" ones is not recognized. He and others can establish that much of the writing accepted at scripture is not attributed to the correct author, but the reason for this can only be guessed at and it remains conjecture.
