This review is from: Introduction to the New Testament (Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) (Hardcover)
This book is the best New Testament guide I have found. The author guides you through the many issues surrounding the origins and authorship of the New Testament, and provides the reader with a balanced understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the many positions. There are so many different approaches to these issues that it is easy to assume in reading a particular book that one view is "the" way it is. The author provides the reader with some perspective. I think the book's greatest contribution is in explaining what the current NT documents are, and how they fit together.
