When this book was published, it was the best available defense of the modern critical text, which very strongly favors a smattering of witnesses that support the Alexandrian Text (referred to by Hort as the "Neutral" Text), disagreeing with the majority of manuscripts represented by the Byzantine Text. And although practically all major components of Hort's theory of the transmission of the New Testament text have been refuted, severely weakened, or substantially adjusted, this book somehow continues to be extremely influential.
It is recommended that those who read this book also read Burgon's "The Revision Revised."
