This book is a treasure. I have used many introductions over the decades, but none quite like this one. From my first reading of the preface, I realized that I was holding an unusual volume. While the book covers the traditional material better than other publications, it has a still greater value. It has a life and a soul. The authors are unapologetically men of a living faith. This is no small thing. With honest and clear purpose, they apply the tools and methods of their trade with a fairness and balance that is refreshing. This is enlightened scholarship. It is a gift that should be unwrapped.

Superb! This is an excellent introduction to the New Testament. Well researched, balanced, realistic and thorough. Treats just about every issue relevant to the New Testament. A great resource, this work will go a long way towards educating one on New Testament issues.
