Overview

"This is not just another 'who wrote, to whom, where, and why' introduction to the New Testament. It is as comprehensive a study of the New Testament writings in the context of Christianity's beginnings as one could wish for in a single volume, including astonishingly full and helpful bibliographies. Don Hagner's The New Testament is a showpiece of high-quality evangelical scholarship."
James D. G. Dunn, Emeritus Lightfoot Professor of Divinity, Durham University

"Don Hagner's encyclopedic knowledge of the New Testament and of New Testament scholarship is put to excellent use in this detailed survey, from which seasoned scholars as well as beginners can learn much. Here is an introduction that takes seriously both the human authorship and the divine inspiration of Scripture and shows that the critical study of the former, particularly in regard to the Gospels, does not necessarily threaten the reality of the latter. The author's caution in refusing to go beyond probable solutions to many problems rather than boldly asserting dubious, speculative hypotheses is to be warmly welcomed, as is his overriding concern to bring out the theological message of the New Testament books understood against their Old Testament background."
I. Howard Marshall, professor emeritus of New Testament, University of Aberdeen

"Hagner encapsulates a vast range of material in this book in a way that is accessible to students and engages most of the prominent intriguing debates in New Testament studies from the past hundred years. Not rigidly beholden to any one camp, this work is substantive, readable, balanced, informed, critical, and reverent."
Craig Keener, professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary

"If one is looking for a reliable, thorough, theologically insightful, eminently honest, up-to-date handbook on the origins and contents of the New Testament writings and the problems attending their interpretation, this is it. Donald Hagner is a master teacher. He aligns his introduction around the kingdom of God as the integrating key and unveils the New Testament's continuing relevance in revealing God's solution to the universal human predicament."
David E. Garland, Charles J. and Eleanor McLerran Delancey Chair of the Dean and professor of Christian Scriptures, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University
