Product Description

Ideal for undergraduate and seminary classes in which the student will consider the New Testament from a historical rather than theological point of view while also looking at other relevant issues and ideas suggested in recent scholarship.

A vibrant, colorful textbook, A Brief Introduction to the New Testament, is a concise version of Bart D. Ehrman's best-selling The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings. Retaining the approach of the longer textbook while condensing and simplifying much of its material, this accessible volume approaches the New Testament from a historical and comparative, rather than theological, perspective and emphasizes the diversity of the earliest Christian literature. Distinctive to this study is its emphasis on the historical, literary, and religious milieu of the Greco-Roman world, including early Judaism.

The text incorporates a wealth of pedagogical resources including an extensive text box program, study questions, maps, timelines, comprehensive glossary, and more than seventy photos.

The updated third edition features:
  • New "Take a Stand" boxes at the end of each chapter that help students synthesize the material
  • New text boxes on textual criticism, forgery, the historical Jesus, and non-canonical texts
  • Updated and expanded bibliographies
  • An updated Student Website containing chapter summaries, key terms, guides for reading, and self-quizzes


A FREE 6-month subscription to Oxford Biblical Studies Online (www.oxfordbiblicalstudies.com)--a $180 value--is available with the purchase of every new copy of this text.

Endorsements

Ehrman's brief introduction is exceptionally student-friendly because of its concise treatment of the New Testament and the clarity with which it explains scholarly approaches to the text. Given its clarity, accessibility, and Ehrman's wonderful prose, it's hardly surprising that this textbook is a first choice for so many instructors.
-Nicole Kelley,
Florida State University

The overall quality of the text is outstanding. My students unanimously report that it is the only textbook they have that they do not fall asleep reading, and many of them choose not to sell it back to the bookstore at the conclusion of the term.
-Davina C. Lopez,
Eckerd College

Ehrman writes in a way that expresses the ideas clearly, succinctly, and directly. I think students will connect with the content much more easily because of his writing style.
-Kathryn Valdivia,
University of San Diego and Cuyamaca College
