◎ I will introduce you to books that will help you understand Textual Criticism. As far as I know, Professor Hyun-woo Shin’s book is the easiest and best explained in Korea. However, it is humbled that it is all out of print. Still, books based on doctoral dissertations can be purchased from Amazon.
