Written by more than 40 scholars from a variety of Christian denominations, this Companion is a detailed introduction to New Testament study. The contributors represent an international scope and wide field expertise. By considering the historical, social and cultural contexts in which the New Testament was produced, the text looks at relevant linguistic and textual issues. It then goes on to treat the 27 books and letters of the New Testament systematically, beginning with a review of current issues and concluding with an annotated bibliography.
Distinctive features include a unified treatment of Luke through Acts, articles on the canonical Gospels, and a discussion of the apocryphal New Testament. Taken as a whole, the Companion can be used as a text for courses on the New Testament, or as a reference work for more advanced students or pastors.
