"Highly recommended. Perkins has both a sure grasp of biblical scholarship and a deep understanding of the interdependence of Scripture and Christian teaching,"---Liguorian. For conciseness, clarity, and balance on the New Testament's literary, historical, and theological dimensions, she has few rivals. 336 pages, softcover. Paulist.
An introduction to the writings of the New Testament, written by a prominent scholar who is able to communicate the main ideas and results with a clear and simple style. This third edition, although leaving intact the structure of the book, has been rewritten extensively, updating the information and adding the results of new biblical approaches and research. Includes new maps and illustrations.
