Announcing A New (Very Short) Book On Textual Criticism

Henry Neufeld at Energion wrote me this week to let me know that my little primer on New Testament textual criticism is now published and available for the world to enjoy. The title is Those Footnotes in Your New Testament: A Textual Criticism Primer for Everyone. Grab an English translation like the Christian Standard Bible or the International Standard Version, and flip through the New Testament, paying special attention to the footnotes that mention manuscripts. By the way, I mention the CSB and ISV simply because they have the most (you'd be surprised how little the "literal" translations include, a point I address in the book!). Well, this book exists because those footnotes exist. Why in the world are they there? Get ready and enjoy. You can grab a copy now on Kindle (see here) or Google Play (see here). Other formats, including a print edition will be available shortly.


  1. Congrats and blessings on your new book! "May the masses scramble for it like like a free ice cream come on a hot summer day, and may the critics revere it like a Mona Lisa encrusted in gemstones" [ancient Celtic blessing]
