Abstract This new edition of Nestle (= NA) is to be welcomed. The 26th edition with a new text and apparatus criticus was published in 1979; a revised edition, the 27th, with a newly redesigned apparatus but with the same text, appeared in 1993. (The latest version of that was the 8th corrected and expanded reprinting, which appeared in 2001.) The new edition, Nestle–Aland 28 (= NA28), has the same text as that in NA26=27 (except for the Catholic Epistles) but has a completely revised apparatus and new editorial preliminaries and appendices. The original editors are therefore still credited on the title pages (Barbara and Kurt Aland, Johannes Karavidopoulos, Carlo M. Martini, and Bruce M. Metzger). Those responsible for this latest revision are named, somewhat unobtrusively on the reverse of the German title page and, with further names added, in the Foreword. The whole enterprise comes under the auspices of the Institute for New Testament Textual Research in Münster and its director, Holger Strutwolf. All those concerned are deserving of our praise for having accomplished this exacting work.
