Praise for the Lexham Methods Series
"First, I am a huge fan of how this volume is organized. It is easy to read through in a few sittings or to use as a reference guide. The table of contents is easily navigated and labeled so that it is simple to find the subject matter you might be looking for.
"This volume is perhaps one of the most thorough yet accessible introductions to textual criticism available. For the most part it finds a good balance between scholarly treatment of the issues and accessibility to the average reader. The sections on both Old and New Testament textual criticism have sub-sections on how to do textual criticism. These sections themselves are reason enough to get the volume."
—Matt McMains, PhD student, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Organizationally, it’s fantastic. It addresses all the key issues without dumbing them down and yet balances scholarship and accessibility quite well.
In short, readers of this book will learn why textual criticism matters and will be introduced to the method well enough to understand how it works and why it matters—as well as having a good foundation for further research."
—Jim West, ThD, professor of biblical studies, Quartz Hill School of Theology
