Product Description

This engaging, and beautifully presented New Testament Introduction features the best in New Testament scholarship and is specifically designed to appeal to the classroom. Author Mark Alan Powell skillfully presents disputed and controversial issues with fairness favoring neither skepticism, nor faith, treating all perspectives respectfully. In doing so, Powell leaves a great deal of space for the instructor using the book, the student who is reading and studying it, and the interpretation's of one's own church.

Additionally, Powell's New Testament Introduction contains a wealth of tools and information that will help students garner a global perspective on every New Testament book. Each book is introduced and discussed in ways unique to its history and content and is accompanied by helpful outtakes that cover a wide range of critical information from definitions of key terms (e.g.."inclusion" or "ascension") to key concepts (e.g. the Synoptic Problem, or redactional relationships within Paul's Epistles).

The book is also net savvy, and specifically assigns portions (or topics) of the book to online content located on the book's accompanying website. These are listed in the margin, next to the book's text. The "Hyperlink's" link to additional information about the current discussion topic that expands or augments what is found in the book. The website also contains everything the teachers and students will need to engage this book in study and in the classroom. It includes power points, quizzes, tests, maps, flashcards, and much more!Finally, perhaps the most unique feature of this book is the vast portrayal of Christian art.

In addition to photographs, the book contains hundreds of original, thoughtful, faithful, and beautiful works of Christian art from the first century through the 21st century. Such a collection is rare in any context, and its presence enriches the study of the New Testament beyond measure. This work is sure to become both a classic and a perennial staple in Christian seminaries, colleges and universities, in high schools, and in also in churches. Highly recommended.

    Needed to order this book for a class i was taking. So far i really enjoy it. The information is presented in a way that is not at all threating and it lets you draw your own conclusions. There is the added feature of online info and the pictures and art that are added to the book are wonderful additions.
