I've been asked to clarify a bit further what might be appropriate for this blog. The answer is that this blog should have a pretty wide remit. Any news about textual criticism that you might see on a non-confessional list is perfectly welcome as is discussion about individual readings, manuscripts, scholars, approaches, etc. In contrast to non-confessional sites this site also welcomes discussion of the doctrine of Scripture and its relationship to textual criticism and is a good forum to discuss how the approach of an evangelical textual critic to their task may differ from that of someone who is not an evangelical. While it may be a place in which we may present refinements of classic evangelical expressions of the doctrine of Scripture it is not a place to promote accounts of Scripture that reject the verbal inspiration or truth of Scripture or which seek to distance themselves from the historic tenets of evangelicalism.
