Formerly included in the Scholarly Zondervan Bible Study Suite. Also available for individual purchase through Easy Install.

D. A. Carson and Douglas Moo’s Introduction to the New Testament explores the authorship, date, purpose, and historical background to every book of the New Testament.

An Introduction to the New Testament focuses on ‘special introduction’ that is historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and so forth. This approach stands in contrast to recent texts that concentrate more on literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels---topics the authors don’t minimize, but instead think are better given extended treatment in exegesis courses. By refocusing on the essentials, An Introduction to the New Testament ensures that the New Testament books will be accurately understood within historical settings.

For each New Testament document, the authors also provide a substantial summary of that book’s content, discuss the book’s theological contribution to the overall canon, and give an account of current studies on that book, including recent literary and social-science approaches to interpretation.

This second edition reflects significant revision and expansion from the original, making this highly acclaimed text even more valuable.
  • A new chapter provides a historical survey examining Bible study method through the ages.
  • The chapter on Paul has been expanded to include an analysis of debates on the “new perspective.”
  • The discussion of New Testament epistles has been expanded to form a new chapter.

This new edition will help a new generation of students better grasp the message of the New Testament.

This book is a very good resource to have "on the shelf." My only regret is that Amazon and Google books are selling digital copies for $15-$20 less than Accordance. It is hard to justify purchasing the digital copy through Accordance at this price.
