review Introducing the New Testament: Its Literature and Theology Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Introducing the New Testament is an outstanding guide to the writings of the New Testament for readers ranging from Bible students to those approaching the Christian Scriptures for the first time Written by three leading Bible specialists this book discusses in a clear and balanced way the New Testament's literature its message and the issues raised by a careful reading of its pages Wonderfully readable and well supplied with maps and photographs this volume is both an ideal textbook for courses covering the New Testament and a superb introduction for general readers wanting authoritative straight forward instruction on the writings of the New Testament Unlike other New Testament introductions that are primarily concerned with hist. No single volume survey of the New Testament is going to be suited to all tastes Just as different denominations and traditions have come to interpret and apply biblical teachings in different ways one must remember that the choice of literal interpretation is still a hermenuetic choice still an interpretation so too will they have different documents and teachings that develop their own traditions fully However the broader trend among seminaries is toward a ecumenical approach made necessary not in the least by the fact that many if not most seminaries can no longer cater to an exclusive denominational pool of potential students but rather in order to keep enrollment up and the doors open must appeal to a wider range of learnersThus there has a been a great number of New Testament surveys written in broad based ecumenical mindsets over the past generation This volume by Achtemeier Green and Thompson is one of the latest best volumes in this field Designed as a primary textbook for introductory courses in New Testament studies it approaches the subject through a primarily Western liberal theological approach by liberal I refer here to the traditions of biblical studies that finds root in post Enlightenment circles in northern Europe Britain and later North America not the ever changing political termThe authors cover the primary topics of interest for any such introductory course must address historical origins of the writing and canonical development the historical setting of Jesus and the apostles the cultural setting in which the early church began to form and various traditions that arose around the gospels and apostolic letters Achtemeier Green and Thompson devote a chapter each to each of the gospels as well as a separate general somewhat integrative chapter on Jesus of Nazareth These chapters highlight literary differences differences in audience and intention as well as connections between the writingsThe authors look at the Acts of the Apostles and the apostolics letters in logical groupings the letters to the Corinthians share a chapter the letters of John share a chapter etc There are independent chapters on Paul the idea of letters the book of Revelation and the canonical development of the New Testament independent from the chapters on the letters themselves Some chapters such as that on the letter to James is longer dealing with both the letter and the historical figure of JamesAchtemeier Green and Thompson use the full range of literary and historical tools available in this study ancient languages documentary evidence including outside writings literary critical analysis tools and This is not a theological text while the authors address different ways in which the text is received and understood there is no particular dogmatic angle espoused here No text can be free from bias but given the intention to produce a text usable by a wide audience this one does a reasonably good job at remaining objectiveThe text itself is interesting and accessible presupposes no particular in depth knowledge of languages history or theology although these studies certainly don t hurt There are boxes charts line art drawings pictures graphs suggestions for further readings after each chapter and a reasonable index The look and feel of the book is nice and inviting
