Book Give Away

This week’s choice for a give away is Stanley Porter’s How We Got the New Testament. Here’s the catalog description:

This volume 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. The author, a recognized expert in New Testament Greek, offers a student-level summary of a vast amount of historical and textual information.

Responding to those who question the New Testament’s reliability, Stanley Porter rigorously defends the traditional reason for textual criticism–to establish the original text or get as close to it as possible–and shows that this is still a reasonable goal. He reveals fascinating details about the earliest New Testament manuscripts and argues that the textual evidence supports an early date for the New Testament’s formation. He also distinguishes between continuous text manuscripts and those that offer only excerpts, thereby providing a helpful nuance for textual criticism. Porter concludes by exploring the vital role translation plays in biblical understanding and evaluating various translation theories.
