About the Author

Elijah Hixson (PhD, University of Edinburgh) is junior research associate in New Testament Text and Language at Tyndale House, Cambridge, and author of Scribal Habits in Sixth-Century Greek Purple Codices. Peter J. Gurry (PhD, University of Cambridge) is assistant professor of New Testament and codirector of the Text and Canon Institute at Phoenix Seminary. His books include A New Approach to Textual Criticism (with Tommy Wasserman) and A Critical Examination of the Coherence-Based Genealogical Method in the New Testament.


These young scholars have something to say--not only to Christian speakers and writers but to non-Christian speakers and writers and even to New Testament scholars of all stripes. I was happily stunned to see the depth of discussion, the candid examination, and the up-to-date bibliography in each chapter. Although Myths and Mistakes in New Testament Textual Criticism is written in clear, user-friendly prose, the contents are well-grounded and perspicacious. I intend to utilize this volume unapologetically in my introduction as a primary source for several analyses."--From the foreword by Daniel B. Wallace, Dallas Theological Seminary and Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts
