EXTRACT FROM SOME PRESS NOTICES OF
THE FIRST EDITION.
" It will prove a very useful book to almost any student of the New Testament. To the excellent and religious persons who use their Bibles as an adjunct to their daily devotions it will often serve as the best commentary upon things hard to be understood: to the conductors of Bible Classes' and other such anxious inquirers' its rendering will often prove highly suggestive, while for mere accuracy it may be safely trusted to." -Athenaum.
“ Dr. Davidson has conferred an enduring benefit on English readers by this admirable volume. The Introduction bears all the characteristics of his extensive learning and diligent research."- Watchman.
“ This book will be a welcome addition to the library of those who understand the object of the criticism of the text of the Bible, and yet are not sufficiently at home in the Greek Testament to make good use of Von Tischendorf's publications. We should be glad if this book should attain a wide circulation."--Nonconformist.
“There is no one in this country who is better entitled than Dr. Davidson to be heard on the question of Biblical Revision. We can testify that Dr. Davidson's book is one that no Bible student can afford to do without."Truthseeker.
“ Dr. Davidson has done well in carrying out his long-formed purpose of giving English readers the results of the latest labours of his friend.
We heartily welcome the volume as a help to the more accurate study of the New Testament."--Freeman.
