Product Description

The dynamic teachings of the New Testament are often lost in the dryness and formality of academic study. In The New Testament with Imagination William Loader seeks to solve this conundrum. He brings imagination into play to enter the world of the New Testament and carefully reads key sample passages to go right to the heart if its message.

This book offers a unique new way of approaching the New Testament---nothing else like it is in print---and will be accessible to a broad readership, although it will also give longtime students of scripture a fresh perspective. Loader's historically sound methodology remains focused on imagining what we know through established research, not fanciful reconstruction.

Loader's distinctive work has the strength of a standard introduction, but without an overload of information, and the depth of a New Testament theology, but written in language accessible to readers new to the New Testament.

William Loader is an Australian research Council Professorial Fellow at Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia. His other books include The Christology of the Fourth Gospel and The Johannine Epistles.
