Van Bruggen's The Ancient Text of the New Testament

I'm in Wake Forest for my sports massage and my Greek class and lookie here what I found on my shelf:

I bought it in 1976, the year I began teaching. Most people have never heard of Jakob van Bruggen but he was a leading textual scholar in his day. The book is about the rejection of the Byzantine text -- as well as its value, age, and nature. Can it ever be rehabilitated? he asks. Great question!
