Editorial Reviews

"If you are looking for an introduction to the New Testament that is beautifully illustrated, handles well the essential background issues, and provides an excellent survey of the content of each book, then this is the survey you have been looking for! This book will serve well as a college textbook, or as a resource for a local church that wants to help its congregation get a better grasp of God’s gift of the New Testament."
 —Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
 
 "Approaching the New Testament combines academic scholarship with a practical readability to provide an introduction and survey that will be a welcome resource for a wide array of Bible reading and study. Whether you are a pastor working on a sermon, a student taking a Bible class, or someone studying the Bible for your personal enrichment, this book will serve you well!"
 —Brian Autry, executive director, SBC of Virginia 
  
"Rigorous in scholarship yet accessible in its approach, this New Testament survey delivers on what it promises: to provide an easy-to-read introduction to the writings of the New Testament in their historical setting. This book is a must-read for all who are interested in a truly biblically grounded understanding of the New Testament writings."
 —David Alan Black, Dr. M.O. Owens, Jr. Chair of New Testament Studies, and senior professor of New Testament and Greek, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
 
 "Most New Testament introductions never get to the point of asking or answering the question of relevance and application of the New Testament to the situations we face in the twenty-first century church. This introduction does precisely that consistently throughout this volume with its Connection Points sections. For pastors and lay people who do not have time for long discussions of original context with little guidance on how to apply the material today, in other words those who want a volume that ’cuts to the chase’ hermeneutically speaking and addresses the issues of today from God’s Word, this is the introduction for you." 
 —Ben Witherington III, Jean R. Amos Professor of New Testament for Doctoral Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary, and emeritus professor of New Testament, St. Andrews University, Scotland
