Discovering the New Testament is a new and comprehensive introduction to the New Testament in three volumes, reflecting current research and scholarship in New Testament studies. Each volume provides a thorough discussion of background issues as well as treating theological themes and practical application. Ideal for college or seminary students, the volumes provide numerous maps and charts, as well as discussion questions for each chapter and a focus on real-life relevance and application.
In this third volume, Mark J. Keown surveys Hebrews, the General Epistles, and Revelation. In addition to covering introductory matters, Keown addresses key concerns for each book, such as the use of the Old Testament in Hebrews, James’s view of justification, the relationship of 2 Peter and Jude, and Revelation’s various interpretative approaches.
...a clear and comprehensive guide to help us to discover the New Testament anew. Highly recommended!
—Paul Trebilco, professor of New Testament Studies, Theology Programme, University of Otago
If you are familiar with Volumes 1 and 2, this wonderfully completes the series. If not, they are all worth having.
