A thorough introduction to New Testament textual criticism, saturated with a perspective almost always in favor of the Westcott-Hort text. Gregory describes the work of earlier textual critics, text-critical canons, and text-critical materials. Gregory candidly displays a high level of confidence in the revised text of Westcott & Hort, and a matching disregard for the Byzantine Text. His description of Codex Sinaiticus includes an unfair and one-sided defense of Tischendorf's version of events of how Tischendorf found and obtained the manuscript.
This is a good supplement to Scrivener's "Plain Introduction," although both works require some updating.
