    1 starNo starNo starNo starNo star    for Liberals only

    A liberal view of scripture that may offend many Evangelicals. I threw my copy in the bin.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Perfect!

    This book by John Drane just the perfect Introduction to the New Testament going.

    It is a good read and so is suitable for someone who wants a general introduction to the world that Jesus lived in and the early results of his life. Whilst the books simplicity makes it best for A-Level's it is also helpful for the undergraduate student.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Indispensable (and twice as thick as 'Introducing the OT'!)

    In contrast to the next reviewer down, I find `Introducing the New Testament' invaluable to my studies (I'm just finishing the first year of a degree course with the London School of Theology). John Drane's easy-going style even when dealing with sometimes complex theological issues, coupled with the wonderfully user-friendly book layout (see my review of Drane's `Introducing the Old Testament') make this an excellent title. There is more than enough scholarly information here to begin serious NT studying while still being easily accessible enough for more casual Bible study.

    I have been fortunate in being able to compare this revised edition with the previous edition: there has been a small but significant "sharpening up" of the text and the above mentioned layout has changed (and improved) greatly, and there is also (at least one) completely new Special Article - `The gospels as Graeco-Roman biography' (P168). It's surprising how much difference - and how greatly positive that difference is - between first and revised editions of this book.

    As I said in my review of `Introducing the OT', this title should be considered mandatory to anyone even vaguely interested in Christian or biblical things.
