»With the publication of NA28, the history of New Testament critical editions reaches a new stage. For the first time, the ground-breaking research of the Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung in preparing the Editio Critica Maior has been incorporated into the standard critical edition of the New Testament used by biblical scholars, translators, students, and pastors. Besides the thirty-three changes in the text of the Catholic Epistles, NA28 has been completely revamped. The improvements include an aesthetically pleasing font, a more user-friendly, streamlined apparatus criticus based on a refined use of consistently cited witnesses, expanded parallel references from OT and apocryphal writings, and a revised (and more realistic) listing of Greek and Latin witnesses, including eleven new papyri. This new edition is a most welcome advance that builds on the long-standing Nestle-Aland text-critical tradition.«
