Product Description

An Introduction to the New Testament focuses on "special introduction" that is historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and the like. This approach stands in contrast to recent texts that concentrate more on literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels; topics the authors don't minimize, but instead think are better given extended treatment in exegesis courses. By refocusing on the essentials, this introduction ensures that the New Testament books will be accurately understood within historical settings. For each New Testament document, the authors also provide a substantial summary of that book's content, discuss the book's theological contribution to the overall canon, and give an account of current studies on that book, including recent literary and social-science approaches to interpretation. This second edition reflects significant revision and expansion from the original such as: a new chapter provides a historical survey examining Bible study method through the ages, the chapter on Paul has been expanded to include an analysis of debates on the "new perspective", and the discussion of New Testament epistles has been expanded to form a new chapter.

Publisher's Description

An Introduction to the New Testament focuses on "special introduction" that is historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and so forth. This approach stands in contrast to recent texts that concentrate more on literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels—topics the authors don’t minimize, but instead think are better given extended treatment in exegesis courses. By refocusing on the essentials, An Introduction to the New Testament ensures that the New Testament books will be accurately understood within historical settings. For each New Testament document, the authors also provide a substantial summary of that book’s content, discuss the book’s theological contribution to the overall canon, and give an account of current studies on that book, including recent literary and social-science approaches to interpretation. This second edition reflects significant revision and expansion from the original, making this highly acclaimed text even more valuable. • A new chapter provides a historical survey examining Bible study method through the ages. • The chapter on Paul has been expanded to include an analysis of debates on the “new perspective.” • The discussion of New Testament epistles has been expanded to form a new chapter. This new edition will help a new generation of students better grasp the message of the New Testament.

Editorial Reviews

'...highly recommended. With its very careful, keenly nuanced, and extensively researched discussions, it may well be considered special in a way not originally intended by its authors. It deserves to be read not just by students but by all scholars of the New Testament.'

    DA Carson and Moo are both good and accurate writers, but when they join efforts the result of their books is awesome.

    The accuracy of the information and the sources, make this a book that should be on the library of any student.

    Excellent text book on the 1st century church and apostalic fathers who were instrumental in developing the doctrines that help us to better understand scripture as we grow and develop a better way to get inside the word.

    This book is a very valuable resource. It is not just for the seminary student but rather for anybody that is interested in having a good understanding of each book in the New Testament. Remember, this is not a commentary but rather an overview of historical data. There are times that the authors will exegetically explain passages, but thats not the purpose of the book. It is a great compliment to a well written commentary or good for students in NT survey classes.
