An Introduction to the New Testament Book Excerpt:

A long-awaited abridgement of Raymond Brown's classic and best-selling introduction to the New Testament Since its publication in 1997, Raymond Brown's Introduction to the New Testament has been widely embraced by modern readers seeking to understand the Christian Bible. Acknowledged as a paragon of New Testament studies in his lifetime, Brown was a gifted communicator who wrote with ease and clarity. Abridged by Marion Soards, who worked with Brown on the original text, this new, concise version maintains the essence and centrist interpretation of the original without tampering with Brown's perspective, insights, or conclusions. The biblical writings themselves remain the focus, but there are also chapters dealing with the nature, origin, and interpretation of the New Testament texts, as well as chapters concerning the political, social, religious, and philosophical world of antiquity. Furthermore, augmenting Brown's commentary on the New Testament itself are topics such as the Gospels' relationship to one another; the form and function of ancient letters; Paul's thought and life, along with his motivation, legacy, and theology; a reflection on the historical Jesus; and a survey of relevant Jewish and Christian writings. This comprehensive, reliable, and authoritative guidebook is now more accessible for novices, general readers, Bible study groups, ministers, scholars, and students alike.

An Introduction to the New Testament for Catholics Book Excerpt:

The title of this book may be a bit puzzling-An Introduction to the New Testament for Catholics? The New Testament belongs to all Christians, and the modern study of the New Testament has benefited from the contributions by scholars of all Christian denominations. But there are problems with the New Testament that are specific to Catholics. In this volume, Joseph Kelly deals with the concerns of modern Christians reading the Bible and provides an accessible introduction for students. It's a book that teachers can use rather than a book that presents teachers with problems they have to explain. Most New Testament introductions confuse students by talking about the historical Jesus and the historical Paul by discussing Paul before Jesus because Paul came before him in the New Testament writings. Many Catholics also expect to find all of the church's current teachings and practices laid out in the Bible and are confused when they are not. Kelly helps readers to understand what modern scholars say about the individual books by outlining them in the communities that produced them. He explains that we can't understand what roles the New Testament can play in modern life if we don't understand what it meant to the earliest Christians. The New Testament was read by unsophisticated believers. It was accessible then, and it is accessible now. It tells the story of the most remarkable person who ever lived and of his disciples. It includes some of the most famous narratives in the world, some of the most memorable tales, most immoral words, and striking images. It introduces us to great people who moved history, and tells of the now anonymous people who took the difficult step of leaving thereligions of their ancestors and families to become Christians. Kelly shows that in looking at the New Testament we see real people communicating with us, sharing their beliefs, their fears, and their hopes, and our shared humanity bridges any gap. Distant yet familiar, challenging yet comprehensible, the New Testament is a precious heritage, and one that Kelly recommends we must make our own.

In keeping with the predominant place of the gospel in Lutheran theology, this introductory volume on the New Testament carries the same title as the series, Called by the Gospel. Readers will find within its pages a high view of the Christian Scriptures, explanation of keys texts with careful attention to the historical and cultural contexts, particular focus on the presentation of Jesus by the various texts, and a conversational style that seeks to convey the message of the text for contemporary times. Although the book was written with university students in mind, any Christians who seek to deepen their grasp of the New Testament will find within its pages helpful and challenging insights. This book builds on material presented in the first volume of the series, Called to be God's People, and supplements its contents with maps, photos, suggested readings, discussion questions, and a glossary. Together these two volumes prepare the university student for an in-depth consideration of Christian doctrine in Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess.

This book is a readable and analytical survey of those important but little-known Christian documents of the second and third centuries which are collectively referred to as the New Testament Apocrypha, and is intended to serve both as an introductory guide for interested clergy and laity, but also as a useful reference for those pursuing higher research. Questions of the manufacture of the codices, the transmission of the texts, the discovery of the lost and hidden books, and of the classification of the documents are considered, and the books are placed and critically examined in their geographical and social setting.
