Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable?

This modern classic in the field of New Testament studies offers a compelling defense of biblical truth. F.F. Bruce, one of evangelicalism's most respected scholars, makes a clear case for the historical trustworthiness of the Christian Scriptures, drawing on evidence from the New Testament documents themselves as well as extrabiblical sources. Concise chapters explore the canon and dating of the New Testament, the nature of the Gospels (including a look at miracles), the life and writings of Paul, and archaeological and literary evidence. Including here a completely updated bibliography, Bruce's long-standing affirmation of the New Testament is still as authoritative and engaging as ever.

F.F. Bruce helps to strengthen our faith in Christ and the Scriptures. This little book will help the reader understand how the N.T. came together and why we can trust that it is the word of God. Bruce reveals that the N.T. can stand up under any scrutiny and only be found as historically reliable. He says, "Some writers may toy with the fancy of a 'Christ-myth,' but they do not do so on the ground of historical evidence." I recommend this book to anyone wanting a basic understanding of the formation and reliability of the New Testament... as well as becoming familiar with first-second century Roman and Jewish historians that affirm people, places, and events in the N.T.
