Adolf Deissmann New Testament Studies Collection (2 vols.)
Hodder and Stoughton 1908–1912
The work of Adolf Deissmann, an early 20th century Bible scholar, continues to impact current New Testament studies. His breakthrough demonstrations of how the New Testament was written in the common Hellenistic language changed the face of New Testament scholarship. Deissmann's work on Egyptian papri also revolutionized the study of the Greek New Testament.
Deissman’s writing is characterized by extensive linguistic knowledge, Biblical scholarship, and a belief that religion changes lives for the good of the individual and society. In this 2-volume collection, Deissmann’s most important contributions to New Testament scholarship are brought together. He focuses on the life of Paul, studying the social and historical context in St. Paul: A Study in Social and Religious History. In The Philology of the Greek Bible, Deissmann’s careful Biblical studies are clearly shown, as he considers the New Testament from a linguistic standpoint.
