    Interesting perspectives on NT Textual Criticism, from some of the leaders in the field I must admit that this was slow going, partly because of the technical nature of some of the sections The authors were definitely writing for a scholarly audience, and I do not claim to be an expert Yet, there was enough clearly explained to discern the different approaches to textual criticism I wish the contributors had been given space to interact with each other Perhaps the differences in the various Interesting perspectives on NT Textual Criticism, from some of the leaders in the field I must admit that this was slow going, partly because of the technical nature of some of the sections The authors were definitely writing for a scholarly audience, and I do not claim to be an expert Yet, there was enough clearly explained to discern the different approaches to textual criticism I wish the contributors had been given space to interact with each other Perhaps the differences in the various approaches would have become clearer there

    This was a great next step in learningabout the field of NT textual criticism It is in essence the edited presentations of a conference held on the subject at Southeastern Seminary in 2000 Being 20 years old now, there are no doubt some things that have changed in the field one thinks particularly of the advent of the Coherence Based Genealogical Method which is already being put to use in noted critical texts However, the chapters together with their helpful footnotes chart a cou This was a great next step in learningabout the field of NT textual criticism It is in essence the edited presentations of a conference held on the subject at Southeastern Seminary in 2000 Being 20 years old now, there are no doubt some things that have changed in the field one thinks particularly of the advent of the Coherence Based Genealogical Method which is already being put to use in noted critical texts However, the chapters together with their helpful footnotes chart a course into the world of textual criticism which will be of use to the beginning intermediate student The content is not too specialized, but a basic knowledge of Greek and the principles and history of textual criticism are necessary to follow the discussion Two comments are in order First, it should be noted that the net was cast somewhat broadly in assembling presenters Evangelical readers will note that Eldon Jay Epp and J.K Elliott are most certainly working within a different tradition with different presuppositions from their own both authors fawn over the work of Bart Ehrman and welcome the prospect that textual criticism might abandon the prospect of recovering an original text This does not negate the value of their scholarship, but it will limit the use of this book in evangelical circles It is certainly not a book I would recommend to the average layperson.Second, Maurice Robinson s presentation would have been helped by retaining footnotes He made the choice presumably with David Alan Black the editor to remove them as they are kept in the longer version of his presentation which is found in the appendix to his edition of the majority text which is, happily, freely available online While one can understand the size constraints of the volume, this choice makes Robinson s case appear weaker and less scholarly than it really is when set next to the other chapters Still, this book has real value for the seminarian and Pastor as a gateway into the complex world of NT textual criticism

    I agree with Kim Haines Eitzen s review There is little in this slim volume that will surprise seasoned New Testament text critics rather, the collection will be appreciated by introductory and intermediate students of New Testament textual criticism who wish to understand the current state of the discipline as well as some of the needs and tensions within the field While I agree with Robinson s Byzantine Priority position, I enjoyed Epp s chapter the most Again, Haines Eitzen Epp s ess I agree with Kim Haines Eitzen s review There is little in this slim volume that will surprise seasoned New Testament text critics rather, the collection will be appreciated by introductory and intermediate students of New Testament textual criticism who wish to understand the current state of the discipline as well as some of the needs and tensions within the field While I agree with Robinson s Byzantine Priority position, I enjoyed Epp s chapter the most Again, Haines Eitzen Epp s essay is by far the most substantial and important _Journal of Textual Criticism_ 8 2003

    An excellent discussion of four different New Testament textual critics with one response from a 2000 conference at Southeastern Seminary This is an important topic in Christian thought that is much overlooked in conservative or evangelical groups The irony of course is the great weight such groups give to the text of the Bible.
