Excerpt from the Book.


About the Editor- Daniel B. Wallace is a director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, and senior New Testament editor of the NET Bible.

My thoughts- This was an interesting book.  It made me think about the many different ways the New Testament has been corrupted.  I have not read any of Bart Ehrman’s work, so I would recommend reading his writings before reading this book.

I found the footnotes on each page to be a great distraction.  I had a difficult time separating the text with the notes, so I think it would be better if the footnotes were at the end of each chapter.

I would not recommend this book for a lay person or a pastor who has not studied in textual criticism, patristics, and New Testament apocryphal literature.  If you have knowledge in these subjects and knew something of Bart Ehrman this book is for you.
