9780199862306: A Brief Introduction to the New Testament

Featuring vibrant full color throughout, A Brief Introduction to the New Testament, Third Edition, is a concise version of Bart D. Ehrman's best-selling The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings, Fifth Edition. Retaining the approach of the longer textbook while condensing and simplifying much of its material, this volume looks at the New Testament from a consistently historical and comparative perspective and emphasizes the rich diversity of the earliest Christian literature. Distinctive to this study is its emphasis on the historical, literary, and religious milieux of the Greco-Roman world, including early Judaism.

The text incorporates a wealth of pedagogical resources including an extensive text box program, study questions, maps, timelines, and more than seventy photos (including two photo essays). A comprehensive glossary contains more than 200 key terms; these terms appear in boldface type the first time they are used in each chapter and are also listed at the end of each chapter in which they appear.

Reflecting recent changes in scholarship, the third edition features:

* New "Take a Stand" boxes at the end of each chapter that help students synthesize the material

* New text boxes on textual criticism, forgery, the historical Jesus, and non-canonical texts

* Updated and expanded bibliographies

* An updated Student Website containing chapter summaries, key terms, guides for reading, and self-quizzes

2* An updated Instructor's Manual that provides summaries, pedagogical suggestions, and a test bank

Ideal for undergraduate and seminary classes in the New Testament, Biblical Studies, and Christian Origins, A Brief Introduction to the New Testament, Third Edition, is an engaging and accessible introduction that encourages students to consider the historical issues surrounding these writings.
