Textual criticism would not be possible without the great men and women who blazed the trail in this discipline. This series tells the stories of great men like Bruce Metzger, Constantin von Tischendorf, B.F. Westcott, and F.J.A. Hort. These are stories of faithful commitment, ardent scholarship, and crucial discovery. Without the work of these men, the Bible as we know it today would have a much different shape.
