Stanley Porter on Harry Sturz's Book on the Byzantine Text-Type

Stanley Porter is President, Dean, and Professor of New Testament at McMaster Divinity College. 

Recently he sent along his endorsement of our forthcoming book:

The Byzantine text-type has again come to the fore in text-critical discussion, so it is also time to consider again the arguments of Harry Sturz for its independence and early date. Sturz's book provides a clear and methodically precise argument for the viability of the Byzantine text-type as one of the early text-types of the Greek New Testament. As a result, he threads his way between those who have too quickly dismissed it and those who have heralded it as the earliest and most reliable. Sturz's arguments deserve to be read and considered. I applaud the publishers for bringing this book back into print. 

My thanks to Stan for his kind endorsement. The book should be available May 31.
