Product description

Review

This third revised edition of Reading the New Testamentcontinues to make solid biblical scholarship accessible to a broad spectrum of readers. Since it first appeared in 1978, this book has guided many readers through the labyrinths of scientific biblical study. Perkins long experience in teaching the ever-changing undergraduate population has clearly helped to shape a practical introduction to the New Testament for neophytes. While retaining the same outline, she has incorporated new and timely topics such as the Qu ran and its relation to the Bible. The updated Bibliography for Further Study lists excellent select resources by renowned scholars. Her engaging style is easy and pleasant to read. Already impressive for its longevity, this highly recommended book will continue to serve new readers for a long time to come. --John J. Pilch, Johns Hopkins University

With this third edition of Reading the New Testament, Pheme Perkins continues her tradition of producing learned, but highly accessible, scholarship. For conciseness, clarity, and the ability to offer a balanced introduction to the literary, historical, and theological dimensions of the New Testament, the volume is unrivaled. Written by an eminent New Testament scholar, this New Testament introduction will be welcomed by professors and students alike for its completeness, organizational structure, and engaging prose. Features such as study questions, "things to do," and "things to think about" add to its value for the classroom. The introduction is informed by the latest research on the New Testament and its environment, and Professor Perkins' choices of comparative materials from ancient sources reflect an enormous breadth of knowledge. This book is the product of an experienced teacher and researcher, and it is evident on every page. I can think of no other scholar today that I would rather have as a guide for my students as they begin their journey in understanding the New Testament! --Margaret Y. MacDonald, St. Francis Xavier University
