Craig A. Evan's seems to sum up my view of Lost Christianities as vaguely expressed in my rant below. He states:
The only way someone can come up with a divergent "Christianity" is to import a second-century writing or teacher into the middle of the first century. The examples cited by Bart Ehrman in his Lost Christianities are second-century persons and movements. He discusses Ebionites, Marcion and his following, and Gnosticism. All of these individuals and groups arose in the second century. (Craig A. Evans, Fabricating Jesus. p.202)
