New Testament textual criticism as an important but often overlooked field of study. The outgrowth of a recent symposium at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, this concise guide focuses intently on the methodology of textual criticism. Black's collection of essays includes an overview of the discipline (Eldon Epp), followed by up-to-date discussion of three prevailing approaches: 'reasoned eclecticism' (Michael Holmes), 'thoroughgoing eclecticism' (J.K. Elliott), and 'Byzantine priority' (Maurice Robinson).
David Alan Black (D.Theol., University of Basel) is professor of New Testament and Greek at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous books, including It's Still Greek to Me.
