Long accepted as the benchmark among introductory works on the New Testament, Donald Guthrie's New Testament Introduction is now in its Fourth Edition.
Many books in this genre provide every kind of 'help' imaginable-from CD-ROMs to online quizzes. Guthrie's book is different. It is focused exclusively on academic content serving the believer. Each New Testament book is presented in thorough detail. Guthrie takes account of critical theories by Christians and non-Christians and examines them. He engages and sorts critically and responsible sifts through issues of authorship, date, provenance, literary structures and conventions, technical linguistic/lexical concerns, purpose, and the theological message of each book.
Guthrie's work makes an excellent up-to-date reference tool, and an outstanding resource for serious college or graduate students pursuing theological education. Slightly Imperfect.
