The Lexham Methods Series has been on quite the roller-coaster ride:
- First, we moved it from Pre-Pub onto Community Pricing so that you could have a say in its final price.
- Then we cut the price by over 75% so that even more of you could benefit from this amazing resource.
- Most recently, we had some of our contributors tell you how the Lexham Methods Series will help make your Bible study better.
We’ve even created a print proof (above) of the first volume in the series, Textual Criticism of the Bible. Check it out!
Why people love it
Now that the book is in print, we’ve been able to send out advance copies to external readers—seminarians, professors, and other experts in the field—for feedback. Here are a few of the things they had to say:
“First, I am a huge fan of how this volume is organized. It is easy to read through in a few sittings or to use as a reference guide. The table of contents is easily navigated and labeled so that it is simple to find the subject matter you might be looking for.
“This volume is perhaps one of the most thorough yet accessible introductions to textual criticism available. For the most part it finds a good balance between scholarly treatment of the issues and accessibility to the average reader. The sections on both Old and New Testament textual criticism have sub-sections on how to do textual criticism. These sections themselves are reason enough to get the volume.”
—Matt McMains, PhD student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and blogger at The Beginning of the End
“I thought it had good information and was very readable. I’m going to recommend it to the MDiv students I know who have an interest in textual criticism.”
—Ruth Whiteford, PhD student at Concordia Seminary St. Louis
“Organizationally, it’s fantastic. It addresses all the key issues without dumbing them down and yet balances scholarship and accessibility quite well.
“In short, readers of this book will learn why textual criticism matters and will be introduced to the method well enough to understand how it works and why it matters—as well as having a good foundation for further research.”
—Jim West, pastor of Petros Baptist Church, professor of biblical studies at Quartz Hill School of Theology, and blogger at Zwinglius Redivivus
