Product Description

The Essence of the New Testament, Second Edition surveys the books of the New Testament from Matthew to Revelation. Drawing on decades of scholarly research and classroom teaching, the authors provide a practical, readable, and insightful introduction to the second major division of the Christian biblical canon.

This new edition contains new information about the emergence of an early Christian canon, the significance of Second Temple Judaism for New Testament study, an overview of tools for New Testament research, an introduction to Jesus studies, and a synopsis of the relationship of the Old Testament to the New Testament.

Other beneficial features for students and instructors include:

  • More than 150 full-color photographs, maps, illustrations, and charts
  • Introductions to each New Testament book, including background, outline, message, and theological significance
  • Introductory chapters on how we got the New Testament, principles of interpretation, the intertestamental period, and the Synoptic problem
  • Sidebars focusing on significant topics and Greek word studies for English readers
  • Study questions and recommended further reading

Editors Elmer L. Towns and Ben Gutierrez draw from their years of teaching experience to provide a time-tested New Testament overview written at the college level, yet also appropriate for pastors, scholars, and laypeople. They combine the finest evangelical scholarship with a passion to open windows of spiritual and practical insight into the biblical text.

    The Essence of the New Testament: A Survey by Elmer Towns and Ben Gutierrez is similar and companion volume to The Essence of the Old Testament:A Survey by Hindson and Yates. It too is aimed at beginning undergraduate students and serious laymen and continues B & H Academics reputation for premier surveys.

    There are three chapters on introductory matters. The first two cover textual issues and New Testament interpretation respectively. The chapter on The History Between the Testaments sets the New Testament in perspective. While I prefer the design in its OT counterpart better, this is still acceptable. I would have also preferred a more broad approach on the Gospels than just focusing on the Synoptic Problem.

    The real value in this volume is the chapters on the individual books of the New Testament. They are well done and include fine pictures, maps, charts, and content.

    I highly recommend this survey, and think it even a better idea to grab its OT counterpart at the same time to have an outstanding set.

    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.
