Changing the Goalpost of New Testament Textual Criticism

Abidan Paul Shah

In this edition of his doctoral dissertation, Shah examines the “radical shift” in the goal of contemporary textual criticism, as it has abandoned any confidence in reconstructing the original autograph and now seeks only an unstable approximation of the “initial text.” He also provides a critique of the Coherence-Based Genealogical Method [CBGM] and warns of the doctrinal and practical consequences of this shift in text critical goals and methodology.
