Please be aware that all e-reader devices do not display the text similarly. The ebooks are designed and formatted to work well on a variety of applications/devices, but not all apps or devices are equal.

For best reading pleasure, please choose your reading app and device carefully. Our goal is to publish our books in the three most popular formats:
mobi (kindle devices)
epub iBooks (iPAD), Nook (Barnes & Noble), Adobe Digital Editions, android devices
PDF (many devices with the proper app).
Individual titles may not be available in all formats. In addition, Hebrew & Greek fonts and footnotes are often not displayed well by e-reader devices. Therefore, the fonts have been transliterated into English and the footnotes inserted into the text in a smaller font that is preceded by (“FN”), which can be read or skipped over. Also, there are no page numbers in the Table of Contents and Indices because the text is “re-flowable” (e.g., the pages change in an ebook as the font is enlarged or made smaller or is ‘reflowed’ to a smaller space). Please forgive any errors in the enormous job to (re)-format these very important books as ebooks for many devices.

This book is the record of a debate held at Oxford University in 1897 by noted scholars of the day. Edward Miller, the assistant to Dean John William Burgon, was one of the participants. He printed the text of the debate with the approval of all of the debaters. The debate was about the two methods of textual criticism: (1) the method of Bishop B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort, and (2) the method of Dean John William Burgon, Dean of Chechester. Dean Burgon supported the Traditional Text and Westcott and Hort supported a text that they constructed from two old manuscripts.
The Oxford Debate on the
Textual Criticism of the New Testament
The author of this book, Edward Miller, was a colleague of Dean Burgon. Because of this, he followed the method laid down in Dean Burgon's books such as "The Revision Revised," "The Last Twelve Verses of Mark," "The Traditional Text," and "Causes of Corruption." This "Guide" might be looked at as a summary of the principles found in the above four books by Dean Burgon. This book should be in everyone's library.
