He provides examples and discoveries of manuscripts throughout, as well as definitions in the margins and bibliographies. Vincent’s work is highly readable yet gives an accurate history of textual criticism.
Vincent’s writing is academic yet highly readable, perfect for students, pastors, and anyone wanting an introduction to Biblical criticism and practical application of Scripture.
