It is necessary because we no longer possess the original manuscripts of Moses, Paul and others. Textual Criticism deals with Hebrew and Greek, not English. Tov's book details the pros and cons of different Hebrew texts, as well as discussing electronic resources and new developments in the study of textual criticism. His work is immensely valuable to anyone interested in learning about textual criticism, and of course is required for any textual scholars seeking to do work in this field.5/5(1).

      "Moore succeeds admirably. Moore's book is the best survey available of where the literary criticism of the Gospels has been and where it might be headed Moore's reading in literary theory and criticism is wide and deep.

This largest of the graduate concentration areas brings a passion for literatures, their cultural contexts, their textual history, and their critical legacies to the classroom.
