History of New Testament Research is not just for biblical specialists. This continuation of William Baird's work delves into the debates and controversies of the past; from Jonathan Edwards and Joseph Barber Lightfoot to Albert Schweitzer and Rudolf Bultmann, giving you an up-close look at the personalities, theological movements, and conflicts that have shaped contemporary New Testament discourse. Part I deals with New Testament Research in the Expanding Empire and Part II treats NT Research in the Era of Global Conflict.
Continuing his earlier treatment in volume 1, which covered the period from the Reformation through the eighteenth century, Baird takes on the formative era of the nineteenth century in a balanced and readable fashion.
William Baird is Professor of New Testament at Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University, Fort Worth.
