Product Description

New Testament essays brings together fourteen of Brown's early works--on subjects ranging from the ecumenical possibilities raised by the historical study of the Bible to the relationship between faith and biblical research to the theology and history of the Gospel of John--concisely capturing many of Brown's major concerns in the clear and accessible voice for which he was so beloved. Brown had a gift for brining insightful scholarship to a wide audience, as this collection makes clear, and his work ultimately shows that rather than posing a challenge to faith, historical criticism of Scripture provides a path to deeper understanding of the word of God and its implications for the modern world.

In this new edition of New Testament Essays, Father Ronald Witherup, Brown's colleague, provides an introduction describing Brown's life and work, his impact on biblical studies, and his powerful legacy.
