Volume 1: The Gospels and Acts

  • Author: Mark Keown
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2018

The first volume on the Gospels and Acts covers Jewish and Greco-Roman backgrounds, critical methodologies, the synoptic problem, and surveys each of the four gospels and Acts. It concludes with three chapters that explore the key theme of the kingdom of God, including its Old Testament background, the place of miracles, and an examination of Jesus’ parables.

Mark Keown’s New Testament introduction sorts through a myriad of New Testament issues and themes, giving readers a solid acquaintance with the views and ideas this text raises and the background to its construction. The options are presented and analyzed with care, making it a worthy guide to these crucial first five books of the New Testament.

—Darrell Bock, Executive Director for Cultural Engagement, Howard G. Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement and Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

This lucid and illuminating Introduction is everything one would want in a book that aims to help us to read the New Testament. It gives a clear guide to historical setting, to methods of interpretation, and to key theological issues. It also shows us how the centre of the New Testament is Jesus Christ and how the New Testament needs to be read in the light of Christ. All those who read this Introduction will be grateful to Mark Keown for this accessible and engaging book.

—Paul Trebilco, Professor of New Testament, Department of Theology and Religion, University of Otago

Volume 2: The Pauline Letters

  • Author: Mark Keown
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2021

The second volume is devoted to the life and writings of the apostle Paul. It traces Paul's early life, conversion, and missionary journeys, overviews the contours of his theology, and surveys the authorship, form, and content of his letters.

Combining a look at Paul with an examination of his letters, Keown has given us a thorough and fair look at Paul’s momentous contribution to the New Testament and early Christian theology. Anyone will be well served by working with this study.

—Darrell L. Bock, senior research professor of New Testament studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

Keown has crafted an accessible yet detailed overview of the life and writings of the apostle Paul that offers something for new and old believers alike. This is an indispensable tool for anyone who wants to go beyond a mere cursory reading of the New Testament and truly immerse themselves in the history, culture and message of the Bible but do so in a way that isn’t dry or unnecessarily academic.

—Andrew Gardener, senior pastor, The Vine Church, Hong Kong
