Studying the New Testament requires a willingness to engage the texts on their own terms, and this classic introduction provides invaluable guidance, offering a critical introduction to New Testament Studies along with a wealth of pertinent primary and secondary material. Since the publication of the first edition, which was in print for twenty years, a host of new and diverse cultural, historical, social-scientific, socio-rhetorical, narrative, textual, and contextual studies have been developed and brought to bear on the source material, and this revised edition fully reflects the advances in New Testament scholarship since the original publication.

Written from a nonsectarian perspective, An Introduction to the New Testament is ideal for midlevel college and seminary students and for anyone who wants to be better informed about the both the texts themselves and their scholarly study.
