Product Description

From the Back Cover

An Introduction to the New Testament focuses on what used to be called "special introduction" -- historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and so forth -- in contrast to recent texts that concentrate more on literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels. The authors do not minimize these other topics; rather, they insist those subjects are better given extended treatment in courses on exegesis. By refocusing on the essentials, An Introduction to the New Testament ensures that the New Testament books will be accurately understood from their historical settings; and it allows other concerns to be introduced when appropriate. The authors also include a brief outline of each New Testament document, providing a rationale when necessary for the choices they have made. They provide a brief account of current studies on each book, and indicate something of the theological contribution each document makes to the canon of Scripture. Drawing on the core knowledge contained in An Introduction to the New Testament, a new generation of scholars will gain a better grasp of the Word of God. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Carson, Moo, and Morris team up to present a mind opening exegesis of the New Testament documents, particularly showing the falicies of many contemporary theories which attempt to perhaps diminish the integrity of the Apostolic testimony.

By D. B. Rose on 16 Nov. 2013
Format: Hardcover
As an introductory review of the New Testament, this (2nd edition) is probably the best currently available. It is wonderfully readable, and very thorough for a single-volume introduction. As one would expect, it is somewhat conservative, but this is not to say narrow-minded. The discussion on the new perspective on Paul, for example, is a good example of a balanced consideration. Alternative views are presented and discussed; one is free to agree or to disagree with the authors. The research underpinning the book is both modern and well-founded. For undergraduates, I would say this is perfect. More advanced students may need more. I bought this quite recently, and found it hard to tear myself away from reading it, which is very rare in academic literature!
