Item Description...
Overview
The Text of the New Testament is a brief introduction for the lay person into the process whereby the New Testament came to be. It describes the basics of ancient writing tools, manuscripts, the work of scribes, and how to think about differences in what the various manuscripts say. This is a revised and expanded edition with a completely new chapter on how contemporary English translations fit in with our understanding of the New Testament text. Geared to the lay person who is uninformed or confused about textual criticism, Greenlee begins this volume by explaining the production of ancient manuscripts. He then traces the history of the development of the New Testament text. Readers are next introduced to the basic principles of textual criticism, the concept of variant readings, and how to determine which variant has the greatest likelihood of being the original reading. To illustrate the basic principles, several sample New Testament texts are examined. The book concludes by putting textual criticism in perspective as involving only a minute portion of the entire New Testament text, the bulk of which is indisputably attested by the manuscripts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A book we can all understand.  Feb 11, 2009
A great advantage of this book is that it is aimed at the general reader, not the trained New Testament scholar. You don't have to understand any Greek or have a seminary education to pick up this book and find a simple, clear discussion that answers your hard questions relating to the validity of and support for the New Testament text.

The book starts with a discussion of how ancient manuscripts were written, with good diagrams that show how papyrus manuscripts were made. It also explain the difference between scrolls and book format and provides the history of the New Testament--from the ancient writers to the process that has brought it to us today.

Greenlee's book is technically accurate while providing a clear and revealing discussion that shows us that the many discoveries and the studies in textual criticism strengthen the proof of the authenticity of the Scriptures
