This lively, engaging, and up-to-date introduction to the New Testament has been carefully designed for the classroom. Mark Allan Powell presents disputed and controversial issues fairly, neither dictating conclusions nor privileging scepticism over faith-based perspectives. A recognized expert in New Testament studies, he nevertheless writes in a lucid style that communicates well to undergraduates. Chapters appear in canonical order but are designed for assignment in any order. Besides helpful teaching aids like sidebars, maps, tables, charts, glossary terms, diagrams, and suggestions for further reading, this full-colour textbook includes beautiful artwork illustrating the reception of the New Testament through various times and cultures.
This new edition has been thoroughly revised in response to feedback solicited from dozens of professors and offers expanded coverage of the New Testament world in a new chapter on Jewish backgrounds. It also features an updated interior design and dozens of new works of fine art from around the world. Extensive new online material is also available for students and professors.
