Editorial Reviews

“WithThe Blackwell Companion to the New Testament highlyrecommended for its biblical scholarship, The Blackwell Companionto the Bible and Culture seems more reader-friendly but just asthorough as indicated by its ample citations and impressivebibliographies at the end of each chapter. Both books also makeexcellent reference guides without overlapping. i.e., Instead ofpresenting approaches that influence our understanding of abiblical text,The Blackwell Companion to the Bible and Cultureshows the influence of the Bible on literature, art, music,psychology, and even history and politics.”  (BibleReviewer, 7 December 2013)

“Most of the chapters offers substantial treatments of thetopics under consideration, including excellent overviews ofcurrent trends in NT scholarship.”  (Journal for theStudy of The New Testament, 1 August 2012)

"This comprehensive introduction to the literature of the NTcontains thirty-eight articles by thirty-four scholars, women andmen representing the best of Protestant, Catholic, and Jewishscholarship." (The New Testament, 1 October 2010)

Clear sign of scholarly writing set on engaging clearly with thetext of the New Testament. . . This is an objective workthroughout, not set on conversion and more set on information andillumination. A work well worth waiting for and, inevitably andpraiseworthily, likely to stimulate further inquiry and debate."(Philosophy and religion, October 2010)

"It is admirably structured, apparently comprehensive andupto-date, with one important qualification, in that it covers theacademic approach to the New Testament through thehistorical-critical Method . . . this work is an impressivecompilation, an excellent indicator of the range and depth ofcurrent New Testament scholarship." (Church Times, 22 October2010)

“With contributions from an international team ofdistinguished scholars, this Companion offers a comprehensiveorientation to the New Testament’s books, their cultural andreligious contexts, and the most important critical approaches totheir interpretation. The volume’s greatest strength lies inits masterly compression of the field’s rich history ofscholarship. Written with clarity and insight rare in a work ofmultiple authorship, this is a commendable handbook for advancedstudents, their teachers, and a broad audience of educatedreaders.”
C Clifton Black, Princeton TheologicalSeminary

"A concise and authoritative guide to current criticalscholarship on the New Testament … offering 16 sharp andwell-focused thematic essays on NT backgrounds, canons, andcritical methods followed by 21 chapters addressing the criticalagenda for the individual books of the NT,and a wonderfullyinformative chapter on the NT apocrypha. Sharp enough to engage theattention of seasoned scholars in the field, yet concise enough towhet the appetite of students, each essay makes a distinctivecontribution in its own right and offers a select but well-chosenbibliography for further exploration. An indispensableresource."
Loveday Alexander, University of Sheffield
