This is a very concise work drawing on Carson & Moo's Introduction to the New Testament. The information is essential and accessible, brought to us by two of the top New Testament scholars in the world. If you have ever wondered where the books of the New Testament came from, how they were transmitted to us, and how people have interpreted them over time, this is the first place for you to go. Everyone with an interest in Christianity should read this book!
I must allow that the lack of a table of contents and clearly delineated sub-sections does hurt this edition. I expected those features, as they would greatly enhance the usability of this short selection. That said, this is extremely concise. Give it a read and bookmark the sections you'll want to return to- it should take you less than an hour.
