'To many the study of Textual Criticism is wearisome and distasteful. The laborious nature of the methods employed, the apparent uncertainty of the results arrived at, the comparative unimportance of the problems to be dealt with, as contrasted with those of the Higher Criticism which face us on every side, all tend to deter from its pursuit. But it is only through those methods what we have reached the conclusion that by far the greater portion of the New Testament texts rests on a foundation more solid than that of any other ancient writing, and no further trouble can be ill spent that helps to increasee out knowledge of the Book which contains the revelation of God's love to man.'
