Student’s New Testament Handbook was written for seminary students and ministers to quickly gain an understanding of Scripture and surrounding studies and criticisms. Vincent divides the work into several different parts: language, text, history of the canon, criticism, setting of the New Testament, history of exegesis, including a commentary section. There is also an extensive list of Bible scholars and works for further study. This is perfect for busy students and pastors, as the information is condensed and concise. It also serves as an historical introduction to the state of Biblical scholarship in the late-nineteenth century.
Vincent’s writing is academic yet highly readable, perfect for students, pastors, and anyone wanting an introduction to Biblical criticism and practical application of Scripture. Student’s New Testament Handbook contains over a hundred pages of Biblical scholarship and exegesis. With the Logos edition, all Scripture references link to the other resources in your library, making study and research effortless.
