This is the one book that anyone interested in NT textual criticism must read. Years ago, I happened to glance at the 3rd edition while browsing in a bookstore, and I quickly became fascinated by this academic discipline, to which I'd previously given little or no thought. Now, I can hardly think of a visit to London complete unless I can stop by the British Library and gaze upon the important codices they keep on display. The 4th edition is attractive and includes welcome updates by Bart Ehrman, but the heart of this book is still the original material by Bruce Metzger. It's a masterful blend of scope, scholarly precision, and readability.
