Item Description...
In this work D.C. Parker gives the field of Textual Criticism an incomparably valuable tool. Parker provides a detailed introduction to the methodology, and history of the discipline. He explains text types organized under their respective languages (Greek, Latin, etc.) and examines the extant texts and the historical and current research surrounding every section of the New Testament (Gospels, Acts, Paul's Epistles, Catholic/General Epistles, Revelation).

Publishers Description
This is the first major English-language introduction to the earliest manuscripts of the New Testament to appear for over 40 years. An essential handbook for scholars and students, it provides a thorough grounding in the study and editing of the New Testament text combined with an emphasis on the dramatic current developments in the field. Covering ancient sources in Greek, Syriac, Latin and Coptic, it describes the manuscripts and other ancient textual evidence, and the tools needed to study them deals with textual criticism and textual editing, describing modern approaches and techniques, with guidance on the use of editions introduces the witnesses and textual study of each of the main sections of the New Testament, discussing typical variants and their significance. A companion website with full-colour images provides generous amounts of illustrative material, bringing the subject alive for the reader.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Useful overview for postgraduates  Nov 8, 2008
Although entitled 'an introduction' this book appears to be aimed more at the postgraduate Biblical Studies student. It includes an overview of different manuscripts, the various classification systems and how to use them, other witnesses, textual criticism, how to use critical editions and concludes with a brief summary of the various manuscript witnesses for Revelation, the Pauline corpus, Acts and the Catholic epistles and the Gospels.

The author's writing style is clear and scholarly with a vast repository of bibliographic notes which should provide the reader with most of the information they need to find more on a particular subject. The author requires the reader to read Greek, Latin and German to make the most of this book (most citations in those languages are untranslated) and there are particularly large sections of Greek in the final section.

This book served to highlight the importance and complexity of the textual critic's work, of the vast array of different manuscripts and the difficulties in classifying them, of the ways in which textual criticism can influence theology and exegesis and the many areas where further work is required, particularly with regard to postdoctoral research. This was an interesting and helpful book but not for the beginner in textual criticism.
