Description: This volume tells the story of the New Testament text from the earliest copies to the latest scholarly editions in Greek. Using a cross-sectional approach, the author introduces those who have developed the discipline of New Testament textual criticism (the movers); the aims that drove them (the motives); the ancient sources for recovering the text (the materials); the criteria and techniques (methods); and the books and other examples of best practices (the models) of New Testament textual criticism. Written primarily for seminary students, the book will also interest clergy and graduate students in biblical studies, theology, church history, and religion.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Textual Criticism
