As a pastor who must address this topic in front of his congregation, I have done a lot of reading on it. This small book is just what is needed to give the layperson an introduction to the ecclesiastical text, and eclectic text debate. At just around 100 pages long a first read can be done in a short evening, and a more thoughtful read can be done in a lazy afternoon.
The two debaters are both very intelligent, and enjoyable to read. Douglas Wilson argues for the position that Stephanus' 1550 edition of the Textus Receptus is as he puts it the "penultimate," meaning that it potentially only needs some small refinements, that it ought to be the base for further text critical work, and that God's providence will eventually bring together His preserved word through His Church. James White's position, as best I can understand him, seems to be that recent archaeological findings as well as newly articulated text critical techniques will eventually lead to a reasonably high confidence in what the original wording of the text of the New Testament was, and that this text will be generally of the same form as the UBS/NA platform. Both men profess belief in some sense of the divine preservation of scripture, they only really disagree about the method of our coming to know the precise wording of scripture.
This book is by no means a fully fleshed-out defense of either side of the debate, but it is a place for newcomers to start. For further reading after this book I would recommend for the ecclesiastical text side Edward Hills' "The King James Version Defended," and for the eclectic text side James White's "The King James Only Controversy."
This book is timely, and I thank God for the two men who put forth so much effort to educate the church.
