If you have an abiding interest in the majority text (or why you don't), this one is interesting. Instead of looking at the mss's, it works off the major sources, to include RP, 3 of the NA's, etc plus the greek base for the NIV.

And it includes a lot of discussion of the choices involved. The Logos page has samples.

The Amazon page shows a scholar's edition. I'm pretty sure they're the same. The expanded one really looks interesting.

Hey Denise,

a side question for you.  Have you looked into CBGM?  Thoughts?

Michael S.:

Not really. A lot of the comments expressed seem somewhere between 'well, ok, sort of' and 'gee, I don't know'.  In my corporate days of high-end computing, if the users don't understand, the users won't trust/use. Unless they can evaluate in the real world ($ in our case).

My understanding is the word 'fits' as you move from mss to mss (using automation). My neural net designs ignored mss's, instead being fed a chunk of syntax to learn in a writing, moving the chunk slightly, then learn again, and so forth. Until the writing is learned. Then going back, to see what doesn't match the writing style. And which other authors do. Thense, sorting by approximate date. And computing layers of redaction.

So, there's a similarity, but different base. My results suggested an eclectic byzantine produced far better results than the NA series. And if you then ran the early syriac, it was really good. 

If you read the Amazon copy for this resource (his bio, etc), he seems to be going the same road I did.
