What manuscript tradition is your preference: Alexandrian or Byzantine?

I guess that is part of the problem.  I don't know enough about any of the manuscript traditions to have a preference.  All I know is that, if memory serves, the NIV was primarily from the Alexandrian and I don't care at all for the NIV. I know that probably isn't all that relevant since that is a translation and doesn't have much to do with the manuscripts themselves.

I suppose the short answer to your question is whatever the current conservative scholarship prefers.

Hello. Try this link to The Trinitarian Bible Society. This is to the U.S. branch and they take Yankee money.  They have branches in England/Canada/ Brazil /Kangaroo-land & Kiwi-land. Many choices. They publish the Koine Greek New Testament , in hardback and a leather one also. Great prices. It has an 11 point type font , and is  7.6' x 4.9".

I bought the hdbk. at the C.B.S.A.C. at Anaheim, Ca. back in about 2003 (?). Good deal-good item. This is the real deal Majority/Byzantine 'family' Greek New Testament which was pretty much what most 'Reformation-era" Protestant Bibles used  [ all the verses are there , not hacked out or questioned };--- This T.B.S. N.T. is not the Nestle/Aland which has gone through 27 changes.

If this link does not work just visit the Trinitarian Bible Society , www.tbsbibles.org and look in the left-hand margin.

By the way,- They also have a Hebrew/Greek one volume Bible.

Thanks for the input from a while back.  Just got the Nestle-Aland as suggested.  Got it for Father's Day.

Next question . . . was interested getting one for my Nook as well.  The only one I could find though is the Westcott/Hort for $5.  Is that acceptable for just wanting some practice at reading and whatnot?  I mean is it going to lead me into some awful heresy?  or is it OK for basic reading practice?
