Synopsis

A classic kind of introduction to the New Testament, Schnelle's book presents full and up-to-date information about the individual writings with respect to date, author, place of writing, structure of the document, current scholarship, and themes and theological aims.

The book, intended to supersede W. G. Kummel's introduction, informs the reader of all the important historical issues and describes the range of scholarly opinion and literature, preparing the reader to pass judgment. After providing an overview of the development of the New Testament canon, Schnelle then takes up, in turn, the letters of Paul, the Synoptic Gospels (including Q), Acts, the Deutero-Paulines, the Catholic letters, the Gospel of John, and Revelation. With extensive anglicized bibliographies.

Excerpt

This book is intended to introduce the reader to the basic historical and theological dimensions of the New Testament documents. The conception on which this presentation is based has been worked out and tested during the last ten years in numerous lectures, classes, and seminars in Göttingen, Erlangen, and Halle; I hope that this conception will prove to be helpful for the readers of this book as well.

I express my sincere gratitude to Prof. Dr. Otto Merk (Erlangen), who carefully read the manuscript and offered valuable suggestions. I would also like to thank my co-workers in Halle, M. Lang, my Academic Assistant, and Th. Spielmann, E. Maurer, and T. Nagel, theology students, for their help in correcting the proofs.
