4.0 out of 5 stars A thorough and indespensible study aid., 23 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Introducing the New Testament (Paperback)
I used this book for the New Testament section for A Level Religious Studies and found it extremely useful. In his book, John Drane not only translates the meaning of passages in the NT but also takes time to explain the socio-political situation of the time. This I feel gives the reader a thorough grasp of the texts they are studying. In addition I felt that the book is very accessible to both student and lay person alike.
Cross-references featured in the book make it simple to find summaries and additional information on particular passages and maps of the areas featured in the NT pasaages give the reader a clear idea of the distances between the sites of different events.
All in all, this book provides quite a detailed introduction to New Testament than some other introductory books I have read on the subject (e.g. 'Teach yourself The New Testament') and is very useful for day to day referencce.
I would strongly recommend it to those with an interest in the subject.
