Praise for the Print Edition
The quality of the individual essays is high, the New Testament scholarship is exemplary. . . . The book might function very well in an introductory class at the first professional level of seminary education interested in acquainting students with the theological texture of the books of the New Testament.
—Erik Heen, Review of Biblical Literature
A welcome addition to the literature devoted to the academic study of the New Testament. . . . The book succeeds in offering a concern for the critical and historical agenda of modern biblical studies coupled with a positive affirmation of post-modern scepticism concerning dispassionate objectivity. This book and its Old Testament twin are valuable additions to the broader field of biblical studies.
—Andrew Cheatle, Theological Book Review
[Theological Interpretation of the New Testament (TINT)] is a helpful resource for anyone seeking a better understanding of the New Testament writings. Along with supplying a concise summary of the dominant theological themes, TINT provides beneficial overviews of the history of interpretation that assist in identifying the most crucial interpretive issues related to each book.
—Michael L. Bryant, Southwestern Journal of Theology
This book conveniently collects the articles on each NT book, as written for the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible. After Vanhoozer’s useful brief introduction to theological interpretation, the collection proceeds in canonical order with an excellent set of contributors. . . . Everything in here is worth reading. It is a very useful book to have on the shelf.
—Peter Oakes, Journal for the Study of the New Testament
