Everything you've ever wanted to know about NT text transmission but were afraid to ask. Lots of detail where required, but you can skip that for the great tales of how we've come to where we are now.

The Text of the New Testament, 3/e remains a definitive resource for courses in biblical studies and the history of Christianity.

This book offers a comprehensive survey of ancient and newly-discovered manuscripts, and considers both the science and the art of textual criticism as applied to the evaluation of divergent readings of those manuscripts. THE necessity of applying textual criticism to the books of the New Testament arises from two circumstances: (a) none of the original documents is extant, and (b) the existing copies differ from one another. The textual critic seeks to ascertain from the divergent copies which form of the text should be regarded as most nearly conforming to the original.

There is no equal to Metzger's (and now Ehrman's) official textbook of textual criticism. It is a full scholarly account about the subject that defines the field.

For the most part, the book has to be viewed as a textbook and a reference, not a bit of light reading. For that reason, if you are
reading this to gain familiarity with the subject rather than practicing textual criticism, there are some parts that would be best to skim, rather than read every last detail. An example is chapter 2, with mind-numbing delineation of manuscript after manuscript. Some of the earlier manuscripts mentioned are good to pay attention to (and all of them, if you are doing this as a profession).

The chapters are as follows:

1. The Making of Ancient Books
2. Important Witnesses to the Text of the New Testament
3. The Precritical Period: The Origin and Dominance of the Textus Receptus
4. The Modern Critical Period: From Griesbach to the Present
5. The Origins of Textual Criticism as a Scholarly Discipline
6. Modern Methods of Textual Criticism
7. The Causes of Error in the Transmission of the Text of the New Testament
8. History of the Transmission of the Text of the New Testament 9. The Practice of New Testament Textual Criticism

All of the subjects covered has a crucial bearing on textual criticism, so if one has more than a passing interest in that field, this book is well worth reading, and can explain much of why the Bible has so many alternative readings, and how one can discern what is the more probable of likely readings.

The concern about Ehrman taking up the torch from Metzger will come obviously from those who do not like someone in authority over the field whose faith has been disturbed by the textual problems and origins. Simply put, this bears no relation to Ehrman's ability to perform the task at hand, and to do it with his characteristic sagacity.

Arrived on time and as described. This was my textbook at seminary and have referred to it many, many times since then. Gave this one I bought through Amazon to someone who appreciated it.

Another treasure that you can add to your library.

For those wanting to dive into the highly technical discipline of textual criticism as it pertains to the New Testament (NT), this book is an excellent place to start. Both Metzger and Ehrman bring a wealth of knowledge and insight into the intricacies of NT text criticism. They survey the historical development of text criticism as a discipline begun to preserve ancient, Greek and Roman texts and then as it relates to the NT.

When Metzger and Ehrman delve into NT text criticism, they provide an excellent rundown of the important textual witnesses to the Greek text of the NT (see pp 53-92) in addition to the methodology involved in this discipline (essentially the rest of the book). The concluding chapter is a gem as the coauthors demonstrate how one does text criticism with key passages of the NT.

One more tidbit, this book by Metzger and Ehrman is much more current than The Text of the New Testament by Aland and Aland. That being said, the latter book is a good supplement to the Metzger/Ehrman work with respect to the manuscripts of the NT. The Alands list way more witnesses, but their methodology has been rendered obsolete since the publication of the Editio Critica Maior (ECM).

More Christians need to read this book and other works by Metzger. We can't really understand the New Testament without having an understanding of how it came to exist in its present state - this book provides that foundation.

I recommend this book for those who are interested in the text behind the New Testament. I enjoyed reading it and may well refer back to it as needed.

A clear, organized, and eminently readable description (it's more than an introduction on the topic) of the history of the New Testament texts. The authors maintain a neutral attitude towards the difficult (for theologically conservative readers) passages that seem to contain obvious actual errors (such as the quote in Matt. 27:9 attributed to Jeremiah, when most of the content actually comes from a passage in Zechariah) which occurred in earlier manuscripts but were changed in later manuscripts to "fix" the discrepancy (many other variant readings occurred through simple and accidental copying errors). The authors record how the issue caused changes in later manuscripts, but avoid commenting on how this affects one's view of inerrancy/infallibility. And for a book like this, the authors take the right approach. Metzger and Ehrman are top-notch New Testament scholars, who themselves hold different theological viewpoints on biblical inspiration, but put those differences aside to produce a terrific, scholarly book on the subject. Regardless of one's view of biblical infallibility, any reader will be greatly enlightened by this top-notch book.
Great introduction to critical study of the N.T. and I enjoy seeing what the student who used it as he took the class thought was important.
