Overview

Compiled in honor of Bruce M. Metzger, the most highly respected American textual critic in the history of the discipline, this volume comprises twenty-two full-length essays on every major issue relating to New Testament textual criticism, each written by an internationally recognized scholar in the field. Volume 46 in the Studies and Documents series, founded by Kirsopp and Silva Lake and now edited by Eldon Jay Epp, The Text of the New Testament in Contemporary Research focuses on important advances made in textual criticism during the past fifty years due to manuscript discoveries and refinements of methodology. Each essay is designed to present an overview of the current state of knowledge with respect to a wide range of important topics: Greek manuscripts, the early versions, patristic citations, studies of scribal habits, approaches to manuscript classification, the use of computers for textual criticism, recent apparatuses and critical editions, methods for evaluating variant readings, and the use of textual data for early Christian social history.
