The third edition of this widely used textbook features a substantial revision. Most significantly, Dr. Gundry has shortened his harmonistic treatment of Jesus' life and expanded his individual treatment of the four Gospels.

Most surveys of the New Testament provide the student with background information and technical introductory material, but they do little to help the reader understand the text of the New Testament. A Survey of the New Testament, by contrast, is a guide to reading and interpreting the New Testament itself. General questions of introduction and background are still covered, but whenever possible in the context of assigned readings from the New Testament. In addition, comments on the assigned New Testament readings help the student interpret the text and understand the flow of thought from section to section. A major change in the third edition is that the harmonistic treatment of Jesus' life has been shortened and the discussion of the individual gospels has been expanded. Additional features: - Each section begins with leading questions that help focus the student's reading - The theological perspective is evangelical and orthodox, but other positions are frequently noted, and suggestions for further reading include literature from different persuasions - Section headings and marginal headings make it easy to follow the structure of the text - Questions for further discussion help the student think through the contemporary relevance of the New Testament writings - Bibliographies have been updated - The book has a new, user-friendly design with many added illustrationsAbout the Author:
