A reasonably well-written introduction to New Testament textual criticism which is more thorough than the title might lead readers to expect. Although other similar works are more detailed, the details in Vincent's book are informative and interesting. Despite writing with a measure of scholarly confidence, Vincent occasionally makes bad mistakes in his descriptions of materials, principles, and methodologies. This book is a prime example, for better or worse, of the "conventional wisdom" of text-critics in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
