This is a very important work for students of the transmission of Bible manuscripts. One quote, on page 468, can sum up all of the complicated study of Greek, Latin, Syriac, and other language manuscripts and the modern Bible versions which are based on them which, of course, are not mentioned but are by extension referenced. "The text printed by Westcott and Hort has been accepted as 'the true text,' and grammars, works on the synoptic problem, works on higher criticism, and others, have been grounded on this text. If the Hort text makes the evangelists appear inconsistent, then such and such an evangelist errs. Those who accept the W-H text are basing their accusations of untruth as to the Gospellists upon an Egyptian revision current 250 to 450AD and abandoned between 500 to 1881, merely revived in our day and stamped as genuine."
