Schnelle's comprehensive introduction includes all the nascent theological structures in the New Testament as currently understood by international scholarship. He offers an overview of hermeneutics; discusses Christology and Paul's theology; and considers the pneumatology, soteriology, anthropology, ethics, ecclesiology, and eschatology of each NT book, while giving attention to authorship, chronology, genre, and canonical considerations. 896 pages, hardcover from Baker.
Following his well-received Apostle Paul, prominent European scholar Udo Schnelle now offers a major new theology of the New Testament. The work has been translated into English from the original German, with bibliographic adaptations, by leading American scholar M. Eugene Boring.
This comprehensive critical introduction combines historical and theological analysis. Schnelle begins with the teaching of Jesus and continues with a discussion of the theology of Paul. He then moves on to the Synoptic Gospels; the deutero-Pauline, catholic, and Johannine letters; and Revelation, paying due attention to authorship, chronology, genre, and canonical considerations. This is an essential book for anyone with a scholarly interest in the New Testament.
