The Writings of the New Testament: An Interpretation
Johnson, Luke Timothy

Minneapolis: Fortress, 2010 pp. xix + 571.3rd Edition. $46.00


Description: Luke Timothy Johnson offers a compelling interpretation of the New Testament as a witness to the rise of early faith in Jesus. Critically judicious and theologically attuned to the role of the New Testament in the life of the church, Johnson deftly guides his reader through a wealth of historical and literary description and invites critical reflection on the meaning of these ancient writings for today. The third edition is carefully updated and includes new student-friendly format and features, including a new design and study and reflection questions. Other resources for teachers and students, including different suggestions for teaching from or alongside the textbook, are available on a companion website.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Literature
