About the Author:

Dr. Robert E. Van Voorst is Professor of New Testament Studies at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan, and former professor of religion at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where he was named Teacher of the Year in 1995. He has served as a visiting professor in Oxford University and Zhejiang University in China. Van Voorst has written frequently on religious studies in noted journals and reference works. In addition, he has authored numerous books, including six with Cengage Learning: RELG: WORLD, 4th Edition; READINGS IN CHRISTIANITY, 3rd Edition; ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES, 9th Edition; ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES: EASTERN RELIGIONS; ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES: WESTERN RELIGIONS; and READING THE NEW TESTAMENT TODAY, now also in a Chinese version. Other books by Van Voorst include BUILDING YOUR NEW TESTAMENT GREEK VOCABULARY, 3rd Edition; THE ASCENTS OF JAMES, a recovery and commentary on a second-century Jewish-Christian document; and JESUS OUTSIDE THE NEW TESTAMENT, an examination of traditions about Jesus in ancient classical and Jewish documents, now also in Italian; and COMMONLY MISUNDERSTOOD VERSUS OF THE BIBLE: WHAT THEY REALLY MEAN.

Review:

"The idea of bringing so many types of resources together is brilliant. . . . as this all-in-one format becomes more popular in textbook publishing, both instructors and students should become familiar and comfortable with all the different features and options. A mobile device application would greatly enhance the usability and popularity of the product."

"The text is a dream come true. It is clear, precise, and well planned with more resources than you could ever wish. More texts need to be as complete as this one."

"I. . . found it to be one of the best texts I have ever used. I will use it again."

"Van Voorst and the production team have produced a very appealing text. The visuals are stunning, the writing is engaging, and the abilities and interests of the student audience are always kept in mind. By foregrounding the learning objectives and providing the resources for students to take charge of their own learning and self-assessment, instructors will have more time to make the classroom experience engaging and centered around discussion rather than presentation of factual material."
