We are pleased to announce a hardback, Smyth sewn edition of the Byzantine text (available on Amazon, here) as prepared by Robinson and Pierpont. This edition contains the Majority text (sometimes called the Byzatine textform) which was compiled by Maurice Robinson and William Pierpont. Robinson and Pierpont have taken the utmost care in preparing that text for this edition. Various other methods for restoration of the original NT text have fallen short of their goal, in part due to methodological subjectivity, and in part to a presuppositional bias against the claims of the Byzantine Textform. The texts created under such a bias tend to be based on only a handful of favored manuscripts, and fail to consider all transmissional factors in the preservation of the original text. As a result, the modern eclectic texts tend to preserve more of a caricature than the essence of the originals. In contrast, Robinson and Pierpont have applied many of the same methods of textual criticism to their task, but without the anti-Byzantine bias. Their method of "reasoned transmissionalism" is based on the wider scope of manuscript transmission throughout history. The appendix contains Robinson's essay, "The Case for Byzantine Priority," which presents a rationale for and defense of the theory and methodology that has been applied in the preparation of this edition. To order, click here.
