Alas, I am unable to drink from the depths of this well! Oct 7, 2002
What do I mean by that?
This book is a gem, a masterpiece, assembled posthumously after the authors death in the late 1800's. However the topics within deal with the Greek text, and do so using the Greek alphabet, which I (generally) am unable to read. There are many quotes in Latin too, and though I can read a little Latin, it's not enough to glean much from this book.
The book does a great job of tracing and explaining many of the errors which crept into the Traditional Text of the New Testament over the centuries, and which have resulted in the so-called "modern translations." Almost without exception, all of the "modern versions" were "translated" from DIFFERENT TEXTS than the KJV and NKJV versions.
Burgeon was brilliant, and a meticulous scholar, too. I highly recommend this book for anyone who's in seminary and studying Greek. It'll open your eyes to some things.
I must admit, however, that I never completed this book cover-to-cover; I got lost trying to follow the author's Greek excerpts.
