In Introduction to the New Testament, Theodor Zahn, one of the most prominent New Testament scholars at the turn of the twentieth century, examines the information necessary to understand the 27 books of the New Testament. Zahn examines the provenance, date, authorship, and audience for each book. He looks at the literary structure and unity, addressing questions of authenticity and redaction history. He considers what the composition of the various books tells the reader about the character of the author. While he maintains a conservative view of the New Testament books, he does not ignore recent scholarship or shy away from controversial subjects.

Theodor Zahn was Professor of New Testament Exegesis in Erlangen University. He was an outstanding interpreter of the New Testament, but to most in the English-speaking world he is known best for his Introduction to the New Testament. It is without doubt the finest work of its kind. Its conservative viewpoint makes it a must for all diligent conservative students of the New Testament. It should be read and re-read until it has been digested. One may not follow Zahn in all of his views, yet they are always stimulating. The set is commended highly to all who love the solid foundations of our faith.

—S.L. Johnson Jr., Bibliotheca Sacra

The reprinting of this massive set (last done in 1953) is a welcome aid to students and pastors alike. It is characterized by a conservative treatment of the text, a feature which has contributed to its timeless appeal. While one should never fail to consult the newer introductions, neither should one ignore the contributions of this author.

Grace Theological Journal

Theodore Zahn (1838–1933) German Lutheran theologian, patristic scholar (study of early church fathers) and New Testament exegete, was born in Mors, Rhenish Prussia. He taught at the universities of Goettingen (1865-1877), Kiel (1877–1878), Erlangen (1878–1888 and 1892–1909) and Leipzig (1888–1892). He was the author of many important monographs and commentaries. Nevertheless, his influence was underrated because he defended the conservatives in New Testament studies, opposing the radical critics of the Bible. Among his leading works was his three-volume Introduction to the New Testament (1897–1899; English translation 1909).
