Publisher's Description

This thoroughly revised edition of Bruce M. Metzger's classic work is the most up-to-date manual available for the textual criticism of the New Testament. The Text of the New Testament, Fourth Edition, has been invigorated by the addition of Bart D. Ehrman--author of numerous best-selling books on the New Testament--as a coauthor. This revision brings the discussion of such important matters as the early Greek manuscripts and methods of textual criticism up to date, integrating recent research findings and approaches into the body of the text (as opposed to previous revisions, which compiled new material and notes into appendices). The authors also examine new areas of interest, including the use of computers in the collection and evaluation of manuscript evidence and the effects that social and ideological influences had upon the work of scribes. The standard text for courses in biblical studies and the history of Christianity since its first publication in 1964, The Text of the New Testament is poised to become a definitive resource for a whole new generation of students.

Editorial Reviews


Praise for the previous edition: "Professor Bruce M. Metzger. . . remains the dean of New Testament textual criticism. For more than thirty years his encyclopedic knowledge and prolific pen have kept New Testament scholars current in manuscript studies. . . . Other manuals in textual criticism are now available, but none is more serviceable than Metzger's."--Southwestern Journal of Theology


"The fourth edition may be declared an unqualified success. The authors have evidently gone over every line of text with great care, [and] those paragraphs that have been rewritten seem to be genuine improvements. The appearance of this revised edition is a delight, and it assures that The Text of the New Testament will continue to serve students and scholars for a long time to come."--Westminster Theological Journal


"Well-researched and expressed, with that rare elegance of style that graces the English language. It is a model for scholarly endeavor, as well as the definitive text in English on the subject."--Louis I. Hodges, Columbia Bible College and Seminary


"The best in its field. Indispensable!"--Jarl Fossum, University of Michigan

    This book is a great overview of how the New Testament manuscripts were copied and classified over the years. It has very good sections on how to do good textual criticism and how most errors in transmission can be explained. The fact that we can explain how the errors entered into the different manuscripts is a testament to how incredibly well God has preserved His Word over these many centuries. This, naturally, gives us great confidence that we know what was in the original autographs.

    However, I warn you of section IV in Chapter 8 called The Use of Textual Data for the Social history of Early Christianity. This fifteen page section was written by Bart Ehrman as indicated by footnote 17 on page 280. This portion of the book is very liberal and undermines the inspiration of Scripture. Fortunately the rest of the book is not like this section and can be trusted.

    Overall this is an excellent resource to have.
