Overview

Find yourself in the midst of New Testament times and events with NEW TESTAMENT STORY: AN INTRODUCTION, Fourth Edition. Author David L. Barr demonstrates how every New Testament writing is located within the context of a story, even if the individual piece does not express a story itself. The book helps you critically examine each piece to uncover its significance and meaning and gain a stronger understanding of the language used, as well as the historical and cultural differences between Biblical and modern times.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text explores the stories in and behind the New Testament writings and analyzes those writings as a set of interacting stories, highlighting the oral nature of the New Testament world, rhetoric practiced in the ancient world, the historical setting and social context of these writings, and their literary nature. Learning features include key terms, review questions, and suggested topics for term projects. This third edition arranges the New Testament writings more clearly into two groups of the story in letters and the story in narratives. Barr teaches at Wright State University. Annotation c.
