This comprehensive work on the text of the New Testament provides information about ancient and newly discovered manuscripts, and offers various interpretations of the significance of manuscript evidence. It contains references to more than one hundred and fifty additional books and articles dealing with Greek manuscripts, early versions and critical studies of witnesses to the text of the New Testament. Designed for the student, the author discusses a variety of textual problems, simple and complex. He also gives an objective account of the several schools of textual methodology, while indicating what in his view is the most satisfactory procedure for beginners to practice. For this third (and first paperback edition), the author has added an appendix describing recent advances in the textual criticism of the New Testament since 1964.

About the Author:

Review:

"This is the definitive text on New Testament textual criticism."--Jim Hamilton, Southwestern Seminary, TX

"The most readable and important text for introducing students to textual criticism of the New Testament. I've been using it since 1993."--Rollin Grams, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Very helpful update."--J.C. Thomas, Church of God School of Theology

"An extremely helpful and comprehensive companion to the study of textual criticism. Particularly helpful are the notes gleaned by this careful scholar over years of research. Notes such as his reflection on the fortune-telling-like use of the hermeneia texts of John...provide surprising insights to students."--Gerald L. Borchert, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Fills a very noticeable gap in this area of New Testament studies. Metzger is precise, scholarly and up-to-date. I like the way he arranged his material."--Russell R. Fry, The Ring's College

"Comprehensive survey of problems in textual criticism."--James Grier, Yale University

"Professor Bruce M. Metzger...remains the dean of New Testament textual criticism. For more than thirty years his encyclopedic knowledge and prolific pen have kept New Testament scholars current in manuscript studies. The appearance of the third edition of his manual for the study of textual crticism bears testimony to its usefulness and to Metzger's continued leadership in the field....Other manuals in textual criticism are now available, but none is more serviceable than Metzger's."--Southwestern Journal of Theology

"A remarkable book made all the more valuable by the appendix of the third edition. It provides a succinct yet useful survey by this eminent scholar."--U.C. von Wahlde, Loyola University of Chicago

"The best in its field. Indispensable!"--Jarl Fossum, University of Michigan

"The finest work on this subject available."--George W. Knight, III, Knox Theological Seminary
