Overview

The Bible has been on an extensive historic journey since each of its sixty-six books were penned over a 1,600 year period between 1500 B.C.E. and 100 C.E. Its texts have been copied and recopied. And regardless of the most attentive and thorough hard work of scribes and publishers down through the centuries, errors of one sort or another have crept in to the text and have been repeated.

Determining what is a scribal error as opposed to what is the original reading is the undertaking of textual criticism. In truth, the task of textual criticism is so formidable and exhaustive that it has to be divided between Old Testament textual scholarship and New Testament textual scholarship. The Text of the New Testament: A Beginner's Guide to New Testament Textual Criticism offers those new to the subject an overview of the history and methods, aims and results of New Testament textual criticism.

In addition, the reader will gain an appreciation of the work and lifetime efforts of hundreds of textual scholars over the past 450-years, who have labored, so that we can say that we have a restored text that is a 99 percent reflection of the original. The reader will also find that he or she has a renewed confidence in the reliability of the Bible. Moreover, the reader will not be taken in by the Bible critics who use textual criticism, as a means to tear down the Word of God. He or she will instead, be able to see through their misleading arguments.
