I received my book in a very timely manner. This is very important b/c it is one of my graduate school textbooks. The book is a hard read but the material is perfect for an introductory graduate course on textual criticism. Read full review

Page 18 - At all events, when every allowance has been made for possible individual licence, the text of D presents a truer image of the form in which the Gospels and Acts were most widely read in the third and probably a great part of the second century than any other extant Greek MS.
Page 18 - Accordingly, with the exceptions mentioned above, it is our belief (i) that readings of KB should be accepted as the true readings until strong internal evidence is found to the contrary, and (2) that no readings of KB can safely be rejected absolutely, though it is sometimes right to place them only on an alternative footing, especially where they receive no support from Versions or Fathers.

About the author (1995)

Kurt Aland (1915-1994) was professor of Church History and New Testament Textual Criticism at Muenster (Germany), where he founded the Institute for New Testament Textual Research. He served as co-editor of Eberhard and Erwin Nestle's Novum Testamentum graece and was a member of the editorial committee of the Greek New Testament. Aland and his wife coauthored one of the standard introductions to New Testament textual criticism, and he edited the most widely used New Testament text of the present period.
