This is a great Greek New Testament at a great price. Not only does this volume contain Westcott and Hort's groundbreaking Alexandrian text, the page-by-page comparison apparatus shows all differences between this Greek text, the Nestle-Aland text, and the Robinson-Pierpont Byzantine text. So you're really getting three Greek texts in one. Bound into the back of this Greek NT is one of the most beloved small Greek lexicons of the modern era--Alexander Souter's Pocket Lexicon to the NT. Souter's definitions are clear, insightful, and extensive for a small resource. And this Souter has been upgraded with extra features not found in the original dictionary. The volume contains an excellent foreword by Eldon Jay Epp explaining the history of the Westcott-Hort text, and Westcott & Hort's own summary of their principles by which they arrived at the NT text they published. The binding is durable and high-quality.

This Westcott and Hort (hereafter, W&H) critical edition of the Greek New Testament (by Hendrickson Publishers) is the best, or at least, one of the best texts out in the market right now. I say that for several reason. For starters, the text is easy to read. It's not like other Greek texts where the font is overly italicized and you have to squinch your eyes to see the words on the page or accent marks. To the contrary, the words are clear and easy to read.

The text includes a Foreword by Eldon Jay Epp where he gives a bit of a history lesson about the W&H text and of other texts that came before it. He goes over several interesting things such as the methodology that W&H employed, the use of the W&H text, and of other useful data. He concludes the Foreword with a bibliography "For Further Reading" (xviii), which is always a plus for those who like to dig deeper into these issues.

Now with the actual content and the way it is displayed, each book is given a header letting the reader know the major theme of any given section. Let's take the Epistle of James for example. Verse 1 is given the heading "Opening Greeting", letting the reader know that it is the opening greeting of the letter. Verses 2 through 8 are given the header "Endurance and Wisdom" because that's their main theme. The verses that follow, 9 through 11, are headed as "Poverty and Riches. And lastly, verses 12 through 18 are given the heading "Testing and Temptation." The usefulness of the headers is apparent when doing exegesis, since it gives us a `staring point' so to speak, in that it gives us the theme right away. So, that's a nice feature.

But easily the best feature is the critical apparatus.

I pray you to look at my comment in Dr. Mark House excellent review, so as not to repeat myself (I talked there, in response to other comments, on the material and typographical design features of this edition, as compared with others).

This very nice edition of just the right size, with its ribbon-marker and the standard styling (Greek upright polytonic -with every accent and breathing mark you may like- at some 10 pt size, a little bigger and clearer than Nestle-Aland 27th, with OT quotations in bold letter, and English section headings), comes as a welcome addition to the field in these troubled and transitional times (speaking of NT textual criticism, nearly stalled for a century of intense labor, but that seems it will become fruitful again in a few years, thanks to computers, clearer methodological approaches, continued financial support -at least hopefully- and greatly increased international co-operation, with the once opposed teams of Anglo-American IGNTP -now based in Birmingham- and German Institute für Neutestamentliche... (the Aland people at Münster) openly co-operating with one another).

Westcott-Hort edition was THE great New Testamnt edition of times past in spite of its too scanty apparatus (paying due respect to Tischendorf's stii unsurpassed apparatus but more mediocre text and method, and also to the ill-fated life effort of Von Soden, with its methodological foibles and his (or rather his assistants) lack of accuracy in recording evidence).

Westcott-Hort represents a less self-conceited approach, methodologically sounder, that gave us a much better text than we had so far (with due respect for Byzantine priority fans, and bearing in mind that Textus Receptus was a particularly poor kind of Byzantine textform -I will skip the details-).

W&H is a must have for Greek students. This Greek is a compilation of the oldest Greek manuscripts from the late 3rd and early 4th centuries. Secondly,in contrast to the NA27 which is a compilation of literally hundreds of manuscripts across the centuries by good scholars, it fills a niche of comparisons and good textual criticisms of all texts. Thirdly, it also provides a foundation for comparing the Textus Receptus against the older manuscripts. Finally, the benefit of the W&H Greek Text is to reveal the many Latin transliterations that were imposed upon the KJV. Factually, much of the KJV was rendered not from the Greek but from the meanings of the words from Latin in the Vulgate. Therefore, keen insight can be derived from impartial and accurate analysis from the W&H Greek. Much new and good scholarship has occurred in the last 150 years regarding Koine Greek. I am a 30 year student of Greek since college. I still learn new insights everyday from a strong, Greek study. W&H Greek Text is an asset to any literate reader of Greek.
