This is a nice introduction to use for an undergraduate class in New Testament. The study questions at the end of each chapter are worthwhile exercises and the book as a whole takes a scholarly tone that is sensitive to tradition. There is one minor annoyance, in many instances quotations lack footnotes. A more thorough editing for citations would have been helpful.
This is a wonderful book and a must read for all Christians and those interested in studying the religion. View my review for the Old testament book for full review
