Description



About the Book



"Introducing the New Testament presents the complex and often challenging texts and history of the New Testament in a clear and informative manner. The book begins with a section that gives readers a clear idea of how to use it most effectively for study and personal research, followed by a chapter which outlines the various manuscript traditions and processes of transmission that resulted in the biblical texts we have before us today. With this groundwork complete, readers are then introduced to all the texts of the New Testament, and to major issues and debates such as the 'Historical Jesus' the 'Synoptic Problem' and current debates surrounding inspiration - how these texts can be seen in both a historical context and in the context of religious faith. The book features maps, chapter summaries, sample essay questions, chapter bibliographies and reading lists, and an annotated glossary of key terms"--

Review Quotes




"This introduction arises out of years of reflection and teaching. This is illustrated by both the depth and the clarity of its writing. It is a joy to read and should find a place on the bookshelves of any serious student of the New Testament." --Paula R. Gooder, Theologian in Residence, Bible Society, UK

"In this accessible and wide-ranging introduction, Henry Wansbrough shows himself to be a gifted teacher as well as a fine biblical scholar. He provides just the right amount of information to illuminate the Jewish and Greco-Roman worlds from which the New Testament writings emerge, and succinctly presents the distinctive characteristics of each book. Nor are important questions of divine inspiration and canonicity neglected. Wansbrough amply demonstrates how historical criticism still has much to contribute to contemporary biblical scholarship." --Ian Boxall, The Catholic University of America, USA

"This is a prodigious achievement, the fruit of a lifetime spent in attentive study of the Scriptures. Henry Wansbrough has produced a really admirable introduction to the twenty-seven documents that constitute our New Testament, and to some of the issues that beset the reading of them today. This is a work that is in touch with the latest scholarship, but is nevertheless couched in happily accessible language. It can be put safely into the hands of beginners and rewardingly onto the desk of those who have gone more deeply into the subject. A wide range of readers will profit from their encounter with this remarkable volume." --Nicholas King, Oxford University, UK

"Introducing the New Testament is at once accessible, scholarly, and theological. With Father Wansbrough as their guide, readers can be assured that they are engaging the tough questions of history even as they enrich and deepen their understanding of the meaning and world of the New Testament." --Candida Moss, University of Notre Dame, USA
