"Writings of the New Testament" is a key textbook for undergraduates and ordinands studying the New Testament. It appears on every reading list, and all students studying theology, as an academic subject or for ministry, have to study the New Testament. 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 thoroughly updated and includes new student-friendly format and features, including a new design and study and reflection questions.
