NT Textual Criticism Chart Timesaver

Daniel Wallace of Greek grammar renown has been working on a software program that works with the Nestle apparatus. He describes it thus, "Essentially, it deciphers gothic M almost instantaneously, breaking down the various witnesses of gothic M into text-types and dates, and putting them all in a word document chart." If you are doing NT Textual Criticism and want a visual way of laying out the variants and their witnesses, this is a helpful program. Wallace just sent out an email noting that the PC version had been updated and that a Mac version was now available. Go to NT Textual Criticism for more info. In particular go HERE, and download the Instruction Manual to see what the program can do. The program costs $10 to download and will be going to $12.50 in the new year.
