Hendrickson Publishers The Westcott-Hort Greek New Testament, Comparison Edition with Dictionary

Bruce Metzger calls the Westcott-Hort text "The most noteworthy critical edition of the Greek Testament ever produced by British scholarship." In their monumental critical edition of The New Testament in the Original Greek, Cambridge professors B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort established the Greek text that has become the essential basis for nearly all subsequent editions and English translations. Through their groundbreaking reconstruction of New Testament textual history and their rigorous reexamination of the manuscript evidence, Westcott and Hort inaugurated a new era of textual study that has set the stage for all subsequent work. Beyond preserving the landmark text, this new edition offers students and scholars alike a handy and affordable Greek Testament for day-to-day use that includes English headings, synoptic parallels, and complete references to Old Testament quotations. This edition also includes a revision and expansion of Alexander Souter's A Pocket Lexicon of the Greek New Testament. Long a favorite among biblical scholars, Souter's Pocket Lexicon offers concise yet clear English definitions and helpful grammatical information on every Greek word used in the New Testament. A Foreword by renowned New Testament textual scholar, Dr. Eldon J. Epp, sets the Westcott-Hort text in historical perspective for contemporary readers.

Features:

  • Detailed apparatus comparing the Westcott/Hort text with differences in the 27th edition of Nestle/Aland and Robinson/Pierpont Byzantine editions
  • Complete references to Old Testament citations and synoptic gospel parallels
  • English section headings for easy navigation
  • Revised and expanded Souter Greek dictionary
  • Bible maps

This is a great reading Greek testament. the binding is like a real book, solid and well done. The apparatus is clearly presented with the Robinson Pierpont MT and the Nestle Aland featured with W-H's data. The updated Souter's 1916 Lexicon in the back is concise and very useful for good definitions (though not for rare forms),all in all, I prefer it to Barkley Newman in UBS. For reading, I prefer this edition over UBS4 for feel and typography. Plus, the W-H is the most Alexandrian text readily available, it has the feel of ancient days.
