Overview

Stanley Porter, one of the world’s foremost experts in New Testament language and literature, offers a historical understanding of the writing, transmission, and translation of the New Testament and provides cutting-edge insights into how we got the New Testament in its ancient Greek and modern English forms. In part responding to those who question the New Testament’s reliability, Porter rigorously defends the traditional goal of textual criticism: to establish the original text. He reveals fascinating details about the earliest New Testament manuscripts and shows that the textual evidence supports an early date for the New Testament’s formation. He also explores the vital role translation plays in how Christians understand the Bible and evaluates various translation theories. The book offers a student-level summary of a vast amount of historical and textual information.
