Product Description

Fifteen undergraduate professors from twelve reputable schools write this collaborative project, a simple, short New Testament introduction designed for the college classroom. Each contributor focuses on author intent, illuminating the central themes the biblical author intended to highlight in his writing. Beginning with an overview of the commonly known stories to the New Testament audience, the contributors then explore the standard who, what, when, where and why questions in a one-page snapshot, and move to offer thoughts on life application in the 21st century. Fifty full-color photographs and five full-color maps bring the texts to life, and each chapter contains key words for review.

    This New Testament survey is a very helpful addition amidst the many other choices available to readers. I went to a Christian University and wish that this book would have been used in my NT survey class. In fact, I think it may be more useful to college students than some of the the many other choices available to readers, such as Gundry or Elwell/Yarbrough. Fifteen NT scholars from twelve evangelical colleges and universities contributed to the volume, thus allowing professors who are proven teachers and scholars to present the material in a readable and challenging manner. The work is written especially for undergraduate students (by undergraduate professors) and seeks to emphasize and focus on the concerns of the nine NT authors. What is rather unique about this survey is that there is a clear motive by the authors/editors to connect the cares of the NT authors to the our lives today. There are multiple sidebars throughout the book that apply the biblical text to contemporary issues and concerns. You can certainly tell that the goal was not just to explain the text for the sake of knowledge but to deepen the readers' relationship with Jesus. Also included are many color maps, pictures and other helpful visual aids. Each chapter begins by asking and briefly answering "who, why, when, and where" questions and ends with a "key words for review." Overall, this book will be an excellent resource for undergraduate NT courses and could even be used in similar settings in the church. Highly recommended.

    This New Testament introduction is a welcome breath of fresh air. While there are multiple good introductions to the New Testament (e.g., Carson and Moos volume), they tend to campout on (important) scholarly issues and thus either (a) spend little time addressing the text of the New Testament itself, or (b) write a lengthy and complicated volume that functions more as an introduction to New Testament studies than to the New Testament itself. This, however, is not the case with What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About. The uniqueness and the value in this volume is that it seeks to introduce the New Testament in light of the scholarly discussions rather than through them. Instead, the complicated issues of Who? Why? When? & Where? are condensed to a one page summary intended to illuminate the given book and not to distract from it. Also, by asking, What does _____ (insert the name of a New Testament author) really care about? this work is able to develop the theology of the New Testament authors and books on an individual basis. Furthermore, the individual articles are written by undergraduate Bible professors who have been field provenso to speakas careful scholars and good communicators. The result of these three unique features is a volume that clearly articulates the emphasis of each individual author and book that is written to be accessible not just for scholars, but the undergraduate student. In other words, the result is a true example of a New Testament Introduction.
