Introducing the New Testament presents the complex and often challenging texts and history of the New Testament in a clear and informative manner. The book begins with a section that gives readers a clear idea of how to use it most effectively for study and personal research, followed by a chapter which outlines the various manuscript traditions and processes of transmission that resulted in the biblical texts we have before us today. With this groundwork complete, readers are then introduced to all the texts of the New Testament, and to major issues and debates such as the 'Historical Jesus' the 'Synoptic Problem' and current debates surrounding inspiration - how these texts can be seen in both a historical context and in the context of religious faith. The book features maps, chapter summaries, sample essay questions, chapter bibliographies and reading lists, and an annotated glossary of key terms.

Many introductions to the New Testament are either too simple, not providing all the necessary information, or overly complicated and written at a level out of the reach of an average person with no seminary training. This work is neither. The author is thorough, providing over 200 footnotes for further study and additional archaeological and historical information, but at a level that is understandable, and in a concise manner. In this work the author also addresses deeper subjects, such as the "synoptic problem," the Northern and Southern Galatia theories, Justification in the book of James, as well as the historical background to the cities of Corinth, Ephesus, Philippi, Colossae, and Thessalonika. The various interpretive approaches to some of the more controversial books are also discussed (1 John, Hebrews, James, and Revelation). Every chapter ends with a carefully constructed outline to that particular book of the New Testament just introduced. In the appendix, the author provides links to, and descriptions of, several free online Bible study resources that are invaluable to the student of the Word.
