At the risk of appearing to toot my own horn, may I suggest for those
interested in why scholars who all claim to use the "eclectic method"
produce divergent results--e.g., Wikgren vs. Metzger vs. Aland vs.
whomever--the following article:
Mike Holmes, "Reasoned Eclecticism in New Testament Textual Criticism," in
_The Text of the New Testament in Contemporary Research_ (ed. by Bart
Ehrman and Mike Holmes; Eerdmans, 1995) 336-369.
