John Drane's Introducing the New Testament has long been recognized as probably the most authoritative and accessible survey of the subject, both for students and for general readers.
The latest revision of this classic work takes full account of recent scholarly developments in areas such as the historical Jesus, the theologies of the four Gospels, and the role of St Paul in the transformation of Christianity from a first-century Jewish sect into a separate movement that was to spread throughout the world. This revision also includes a substantial new chapter on the interpretation of the New Testament.
Introducing the New Testament is a book for all who want to be better informed about the foundation documents of the world's largest and most powerful religion.
