The Ethiopic version provides a window into the state of the Greek Bible as it circulated in East Africa at the end of the fourth century. It is, therefore, an extremely important witness to the Bible's early transmission history, yet its testimony has typically been ignored or misunderstood by textual critics. This study examines the history of the book of Acts in Ethiopia and reconstructs its earliest attainable text, which is then assessed using the latest text-critical methods. It provides a solid base for interpreting the data of this key witness and lays the groundwork for future text-critical work in the Ethiopic and other early versions. Curt Niccum is Associate Professor of New Testament at Abilene Christian University, Texas. He is also Co-Director of the Textual History of the Ethiopic Old Testament (THEOT) Project. "There are not many scholars who deeply and effectively engage in Ethiopic studies. Curt Niccum is one of them. His carefully prepared edition of the book of Acts will not only enormously enrich our knowledge of the Ethiopic New Testament, but also demonstrate that the Ethiopic Bible is of more than secondary importance for the textual criticism of the Greek New Testament." K. Martin Heide, Privatdozent, Philipps Universität Marburg, Germany "Curt Niccum, an acknowledged expert in the area of the Ethiopic New Testament, here shares with his readers the fruit of his investigations into the Ethiopic text of the book of Acts. Niccum's careful work offers a valuable and needed corrective to previous views. Textual critics and historians of Christianity in East Africa will find here much of interest." Michael W. Holmes, Editor of "The Apostolic Fathers"From the Publisher:
A thorough revision of the author's dissertation, 'Bible in Ethiopia' takes advantage of new developments in Ethiopic studies and in the practice of New Testament textual criticism. This new work benefits from full collations of the versional evidence, and as a result the textual alignment with the various Greek text-types is clear. Accruing evidence continues to move the date of translation earlier and earlier. The A-text of Acts can now be regarded as a faithful witness to a Greek text circulating in eastern Africa in the late fourth century. As such the incorporation of the Ethiopic version into New Testament textual criticism is a desideratum.
