An Excellent Introduction to the NT
on 9 April 2013
Despite coming from a different denominational background I have found Johnson to be a reliable biblical scholar who consistently produces quality books and articles. We use this latest edition of his NT Introduction as a standard text book in our theological college. Johnson engages with other perspectives but does not get bogged down in minutiae. Although he does not cite other scholars directly, Johnson includes helpful biographies at the end of each chapter under various headings such as 'Critical issues [in the relevant biblical book]'; 'themes' and 'commentaries'. Recommended for all who want to study the NT whatever their denominational status.
