Summary

This best-selling text provides a clearly written guide for students undertaking their first systematic study of the New Testament. The purpose of the text is twofold: to acquaint readers with the content and major themes of each book of the New Testament, and to familiarize them with the goals and methods of the most recent New Testament scholarship.

Features

  • Effective organization. The text is divided into six parts: "An Invitation to the New Testament"; "Four Portraits of Jesus"; "A History of the Early Church"; "Paul and the Pauline Tradition"; "General Letters and a Vision of End Time"; "and Beyond the New Testament Period."
  • Nonsectarian approach. While summarizing the contributions of leading New Testament scholars, Harris does not advocate any denominational or sectarian program.
  • Artwork. The text includes archaeological photographs and reproductions of paintings and sculptures that reflect New Testament themes.
  • Pedagogy. Abundant pedagogical support includes lists of key themes at the beginning of each chapter, lists of key terms, review questions, a bibliography, a complete glossary, and many visual aids.
