Featuring vibrant full color throughout, A Brief Introduction to the New Testament, Fifth Edition, is a concise version of Bart D. Ehrman’s best-selling The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings, Seventh Edition. Retaining the approach of the longer textbook while condensing and simplifying much of its material, this volume looks at the New Testament from a consistently historical and comparative perspective and emphasizes the rich diversity of the earliest Christian literature. Distinctive to this study is its emphasis on the historical, literary, and religious milieux of the Greco-Roman world, including early Judaism.

The text incorporates a wealth of pedagogical resources including an extensive text box program, study questions, maps, timelines, and more than eighty photos (including three photo essays). A comprehensive glossary contains more than 200 key terms; these terms appear in boldface type the first time they are used in each chapter and are also listed at the end of each chapter in which they appear.

Ideal for undergraduate and seminary classes in the New Testament, Biblical Studies, and Christian Origins, A Brief Introduction to the New Testament, Fifth Edition, is an engaging and accessible introduction that encourages students to consider the historical issues surrounding these writings.

  • Examines both literary and material aspects of early Christian writing
  • Explores the New Testament from a historical and comparative perspective
This is the best available textbook on the market for an introductory course. Ehrman’s writing style is clear, flowing, and interesting. Throughout the book, it is quite evident that he is sensitive to the variety of opinions regarding the New Testament that today’s students bring into the classroom.

—Kathy Dawson, East Carolina University

The central strengths of this text are Ehrman’s superb scholarship mixed with his clear writing style. Ehrman’s writing style—combined with the barrage of break-out content (boxes, charts, etc.) on almost every page—helps grab and keep students’ attention and interest.

-Kevin Vaccarella, John Tyler Community College
