This gets a 5-star review for being a little more detailed than Metzger's work, but I prefer Metzger for readability. Every student of New Testament Textual Criticism ought to have both works in their library.

Extremely dense to read. Packed with information in both Koine and English. I have a better understanding of Textual Criticism after reading this book. If I learned Koine, I would probably have a much better understanding of it. The book could easily be used as reference after reading. I plan to read Metzger and Ehrman's book as well.

Very difficult but important read due to the topic. If you read or have a decent knowledge of Greek this would be a great help. This covers the topic of textual criticism, an area that you do not learn hardly anything in most "Bible believing" churches. I highly recommend a book on this subject for any one who takes the Bible seriously.

As someone who hardly even knows the Greek alphabet, this book is a little over my head, but it is really interesting. This is a great overview since I don't have time to do all the study I wish I could do. I learned about miniscules, the Nestle-Aland (I always wondered what it was compared to the Byzantine text!), papyrus, basic textual criticism... lots of really awesome stuff!

Decent, if dry, introduction to the subject. Not as interesting as I thought it would be, but them's the breaks I guess.
