Bruce Metzger, one of the most impressive New Testament scholars, died yesterday at Princeton, New Jersey. Metzger was one of the foremost experts on New Testament textual criticism. His work as an editor for the United Bible Society's Greek New Testament and his commentary are invaluable contributions for all serious students of the New Testament. Likewise, his Text of the New Testament: Its Transmission, Corruption and Restoration is one of the most profitable introductions for anyone interested in learning about the art and science of New Testament textual criticism.
