The second edition of this companion to the Greek New Testament discusses textual variations based on the critical apparatus. It contains a thorough explanation of each textual decision that appears in UBS4, in verse order, and is the most comprehensive modern textual commentary. "This is a uniquely helpful aid in researching textual issues." -- review by R C Cramer
From the Introduction to the book: "Most commentaries on the Bible seek to explain the meaning of words, phrases, and ideas of the scriptural text in their nearer and wider context; a textual commentary, however, is concerned with the prior question, What is the original text of the passage? That such a question must be asked -- and answered! -- before one explains the meaning of the text arises from two circumstances: (a ) none of the original documents of the Bible is extant today, and (b ) the existing copies differ from one another."
