Re: [textualcriticism] Which edition of W-H's "Intro duction" should I buy?
- I don't know, but if I were a beginner, I'd get the bigger one becuase it's probably easier to read!Just make sure it doesn't say abridged or whatever.Yours,

I'm looking to buy Westcott & Hort's Introduction to the New Testament in the Original Greek but I'm confused about the two editions I see on Amazon. The first was published in 2003 by Wipf & Stock but is only 220 pages according to Amazon and sells new for $40. The second edition is published by Hendrickson, is 544 pages long, and sells used for $25. Is there a reason for these discrepancies? Is the Wipf & Stock edition condensed or edited? Is one better than the other? (I'm assuming the longer is better.)
