I would second the the statement about Metzger's book on the Canon. It is one
of three works by the him which are especially useful for the serious study of
the NT, the other two are The Text of the NT and Early Versions of the NT. I
wonder what Dr. Metzger thinks about Princeton hiring Martin Bormann Redivivus
to teach Bio-Medical Ethics?

For details see:

Perhaps Princeton Seminary takes no responsibility for the goings on at
Princeton Univ., but alas this is off topic.
