Reviews - What do customers think about A General Survey of the History of the Canon of the New Testament?

Thorough, but somewhat dated.  May 27, 2008
This text by B.F. Westcott, one of the great founders of modern textual criticism, is very complete. The only drawback is the fact that the language is somewhat archaic and the writing is not easy to follow for a modern reader. In general he avoids bias. Where he does show it, it is fairly obvious.

Westcott's book is not for those expecting an easy vindication of the books of the New Testament. In fact, in many ways it leaves as many questions as it answers. One comforting fact, however, is that the evidence he presents seems to leave the controversies open to interpretation, rather than dogmatically shutting the door to inquiry.

Personally, I have not yet had a chance to read any other books on NT canon, so I cannot say how it compares with Metzger or F.F. Bruce or (for that matter) Ehrman. Nevertheless, it is a good and complete survey of the evidence on the history of the New Testament canon for its time.
