Overview

An Introduction to the New Testament focuses on "special introduction" that is historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and so forth. This approach stands in contrast to recent texts that concentrate more on literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels—topics the authors don’t minimize, but instead think are better given extended treatment in exegesis courses. By refocusing on the essentials, An Introduction to the New Testament ensures that the New Testament books will be accurately understood within historical settings. For each New Testament document, the authors also provide a substantial summary of that book’s content, discuss the book’s theological contribution to the overall canon, and give an account of current studies on that book, including recent literary and social-science approaches to interpretation. This second edition reflects significant revision and expansion from the original, making this highly acclaimed text even more valuable. • A new chapter provides a historical survey examining Bible study method through the ages. • The chapter on Paul has been expanded to include an analysis of debates on the “new perspective.” • The discussion of New Testament epistles has been expanded to form a new chapter. This new edition will help a new generation of students better grasp the message of the New Testament.

While I agree with the others that this book is great for an in-depth study of the New Testament, it was a little too much for an introductory course. I am a little confused why the title has the word "Introduction" in it because it is much more than that. I took my first Seminary Class at Liberty from January-March 2010 and this was one of the required readings. I am not going to lie though, because I did not do much reading from this book. I am a slow-reader to begin with because I feel when I read too fast that I do not absorb the information and this book was way too long for me to even begin to have enough time to read all of it. It is a really great resource for me though if I ever have questions about the New Testament in the future. I believe I will use this book as more of a reference than reading it straight through.

I'm doing research for the formation of the NT canon, and this book has been a great tool for a brief survey on the subject. It is very fair to the historical realities, and does not come across as bias or ill-reasoned.
