An Introduction to the New Testament Book Review:

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 Review:

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.

The Letter of James Book Review:

Few New Testament books have been as controversial and misunderstood as The Letter of James. Its place in the canon was contested by some early Christians, and the reformer Martin Luther called it an "epistle of straw". The sometimes negative view of the letter among modern theologians, however, is not shared by ordinary believers. Few books in the New Testament are better known or more often quoted, and because James is so concise, so intensely practical, and so filled with memorable metaphors and illustrations, it has become one of the two or three most popular New Testament books in the church. The highly original commentary on James by respected New Testament scholar Douglas Moo combines penetrating scholarship with the simplicity of style and pastoral tone characteristic of James itself. After discussing such background issues as authorship, genre, purpose, structure, and theology, Moo provides a verse-by-verse exposition of the text that leads readers to the heart of James's message - wholehearted commitment to Christ. In addition to expounding the meaning of James, Moo also takes care to provide practical insights for applying the meaning in the church today. A number of years in the making, interacting with the best and most recent works on James, and written for readers at all levels, this volume will quickly become a standard commentary on James.

Introducing the New Testament Books Book Review:

Many introductions to the New Testament are either too simple, not providing all the necessary information, or overly complicated and written at a level out of the reach of an average person with no seminary training. This work is neither. The author is thorough, providing over 200 footnotes for further study and additional archaeological and historical information, but at a level that is understandable, and in a concise manner. In this work the author also addresses deeper subjects, such as the "synoptic problem," the Northern and Southern Galatia theories, Justification in the book of James, as well as the historical background to the cities of Corinth, Ephesus, Philippi, Colossae, and Thessalonika. The various interpretive approaches to some of the more controversial books are also discussed (1 John, Hebrews, James, and Revelation). Every chapter ends with a carefully constructed outline to that particular book of the New Testament just introduced. In the appendix, the author provides links to, and descriptions of, several free online Bible study resources that are invaluable to the student of the Word.
