Designed for students beginning their first systematic study of the Christian Scriptures, The New Testament: A Student's Introduction traces the New Testament's chronological, thematic, and literary development through thorough examination of each book. Through exploration of both canonical and non-canonical scriptures, as well as on-going debates and dialogues surrounding the historical Jesus, the text acquaints students with the goals and methods of important biblical scholarship. Now divided into six sections, the book incorporates the latest in New Testament studies and provides a clearer and more comprehensive overview of the historical, social, and cultural environment in which the New Testament authors worked and wrote.
