From The Publisher:

Although valuable for their early witness to the text of the Greek New Testament, the influence of the papyri on Bible translations in this century has largely gone unnoticed. Early Manuscripts & Modern Translations of the New Testament redresses this failure by providing a detailed profile of nearly 70 major New Testament papyri and assessing thier effect on modern English Bible translations. A five-page bibliography on textual criticism and fourteen photos of ancient papyrus manuscripts round out this fascinating study.

"This fine work effectively accomplishes its goals and pulls together information heretofore available only in widely scattered sources." Biblical Archaeologist
