Finally- a New Testament (NT) edition that offers a refreshing challenge to the popular (and, in my opinion, misguided) eclectic approach to NT textual restoration.
Since roughly 1881, textual scholars have labored (as Colwell would say) with Hortian "blinders" on. The passage of time, and fresh discoveries, have resulted in the demise of Westcott & Hort's theoretical pillars- yet most modern scholars still retain their basic text, and continue to harbor an unfounded anti-Byzantine prejudice. This volume marks a significant departure from that approach by reconstructing the NT Greek text according to an approach known as Byzantine-priority.
The Byzantine-priority method attempts to reconstruct the NT text according to reconstructive principles first espoused by J.W. Burgon, here carried on by Pierpont & Robinson, known as the Notes of Truth: Antiquity, Number, Variety, Weight (or Respectability), Continuity, Context and Internal Evidence.
One of the major advantages to this approach stands in contrast to the major weakness of the modern eclectic approach-- it provides a cohesive, reasonable and historically sensitive reconstruction of the NT's textual history while accounting for all extant evidence and, at the same time, requiring the fewest theoretical steps where the evidence is lacking. It also, in contrast with the approach of Hodges & Farstad, partakes in none of the weaknesses endemic with genealogical stemmatics.
I would heartily recommend this Greek NT to any who are looking for a textual approach to replace the modern eclectic view, or are willing to at least explore the alternatives.
The first 43 pages of Pierpont & Robinson's 57 page Introduction offers the most compelling modern argument for the Byzantine-priority method that I have yet to see in print.

Surely a very nice edition. Potential buyers should however know that the text is in "manuscript" style , i.e. it has no "critical aparatuses" and "no breathing marks, accents, punctuation, paragraphing, capitalization, or diacritical marks"! (Quoted from the preface.)

Format: Hardcover
Much better quality both in print quality and in content then "The Greek New Testament According to Majority Text by Arthur L. Farstad (Editor), Zane C. Hodges (Editor)". The binding quality is simply superb and the Greek lettering is easy to read. The author seem to have avoided allowing his own personal believes (what ever they might be) influence his selection of Greek text and has followed a better method then Farstad/Hodges (which used von Soden's method) of deciding what is the majority reading. Therefore the Greek is closer to the Textus Receptus reading which the translators of the King James Version of the Holy Bible used. As much as I like the "Interlinear KJV Parallel New Testament in Greek and English by George Ricker Berry", I have to say I prefer this book. The reason why is because the book by Berry is very badly printed by Zondervan Publishing House. The Greek text is simply unreadable in places and the typesetting, choice of Greek font and layout (not straight in some places).
