      On page 2, the author (or a later redactor) states, 
      "two 20th-century texts, the relatively unknown edition of the Greek behind the NIV of 1973 and (most surprisingly) Robinson & Pierpont’s Byzantine text from 2005)."

      I was quite surprised myself to find this text assigned such an early date as the 20th century.  He must have been speaking of Proto-Pierpont, which came the last quarter of the 20th century.

      And on page 129, there's a word missing in the sentence, "The dissertation by Klaus Wachtel of the Institut has made it clear that the old theory arose as an ecclesiastically redaction was unsustainable, but rather what were to be seen as "Byzantine" readings had actually emerged from a very early date and without any formal church-dominated control."

      Are you /sure/ this is a /genuine/ work of J. K. Elliott? These pieces of internal evidence seem to suggest the style of a different author.
