The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown guides serious New Testament students through the historical, literary, and theological dimensions of the biblical text, allowing them to better understand and share God’s "word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15). It offers a thorough introduction to all twenty-seven books of the New Testament and closely examines events such as Christ’s incarnation and virgin birth, his crucifixion and resurrection, and triumphant return.
The second edition features updated bibliographies and footnotes, interpretation sections that cover different literary genres in the New Testament, an epilogue that canvasses the entire storyline of Scripture, and a variety of maps. All of these new features contribute to making this a life-long resource for students of Scripture.

Editorial Reviews

"The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown is a comprehensive and informative introduction to the New Testament. Written from a convictional evangelical perspective, this marvelous volume carefully interacts with the most up-to-date issues in modern scholarship."
David S. Dockery, president, Trinity International University/Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"The authors not only provide the reader with a solid orientation to every NT book, but they also directly address a broad range of issues that scholars have raised. The end result is a richly informative text that is very readable and abundantly helpful."
Clinton E. Arnold, dean and professor of New Testament language and literature, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

"This volume ranks among the finest such studies of recent decades in classic matters of ’New Testament introduction’….Beyond an impressive digest of scholarship, it is an appeal to faithful appropriation of the New Testament’s message."

    I love this book! After having seen and used several New Testament Introductions, this volume strikes me as ideal. Its clearly designed for advanced studies, yet is so well written and accessible that it will not bore the reader as some advanced studies do. I have never had access to the first edition and so am not sure the level of updating in this second edition, but this is an outstanding book.

    Be sure to read the Preface to the Second Edition to see clearly the conservative outlook of Andreas Kostenberger, L. Scott Kellum, and Charles Quarles, and design of the volume. On both counts, it is exactly what I would be looking for in this type volume. Chapter 1 speaks of issues of canonicity and even inerrancy. They well outline the twists and turns of scholarship while not allowing it to make them lose perspective. The chapter on the political and religious background is finely executed.

    Chapter 3 expertly introduces the Gospels with a chapter following on each Gospel. Next we have a chapter on Acts, then one on Paul, followed by each of the rest of the books of the New Testament. An ending chapter and an epilogue well round out the volume.

    Each of the chapters covering the perspective book is the greatest asset on the volume. Real background, scholarly thought, literary designs, theology, and contents of the book are all enlightening. Fine charts and maps only make the content better.

    Again, I give this the highest possible ratings among Introductions of the New Testament.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
