This is the first part of a two-volume defense of the traditional (Byzantine) text of the Gospels, employing text-critical argumentation by Dean John Burgon arranged and supplemented by Edward Miller. Although Burgon is sometimes considered an arch-conservative firebrand, his analysis is well-organized and filled with cogent observations, and at times the reader may feel sympathy with the sense of outrage and frustration that sometimes colors Burgon's sentences. This is to be read along with its companion-book, "Causes of Corruption."

Page 40 - It is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within a hundred years after it was composed; that Irenaeus and the African Fathers and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church, used far inferior manuscripts to those employed by Stunica, or Erasmus, or Stephens thirteen centuries later, when moulding the Textus Eeceptus.
