'This is an important and interesting book ... should serve as a stimulating and readable textbook.' Evangelical Quarterly 'This is an important, thought-provoking and challenging book. If any readers begin the book with the foolish prejudice that textual criticism is irrelevant or unimportant, they will not hold such a view after having digested it.' J. K. Elliott 'The Living Text of the Gospels by D. C. Parker is an admirable guide. It is full of vivid detail about the history of the making of copies of the Gospels and about individual manuscripts. This is a fine book, skilfully managing to give quite complex, skilfully managing to give quite complex examples without using Greek, so widening its appeal, and achieving an attractive limpidity of argument. It deserves an extensive readership.' The Times Literary Supplement 'This book is marvellous and can, should, be studied by anyone interested in trying to read the New Testament today.' Religion and Theology 'This is an authoritative overview by an expert of a sometimes neglected field of study. It is well written, needs no knowledge of Greek, and will be valued by all who enjoy the detail of a carefully conducted argument.' Church Times 'This book should be required reading on any course of textual scholarship, or for any person undertaking an edition of any complexity. It is among the most radical and innovative books on textual scholarship published in the last decades.' Peter Robinson, Texts '... opens up excitingly fresh ways of understanding the Gospels, demolo=ishes many false views of the Bible, reveals what we actually possess in scripture, and relates a study of the text to modern ethical issues as well as to more specialized problems such as the relations between the Synoptic Gospels.'
