'Complete with an extraordinary array of visual illustrations, this book covers important topics needed for an introductory text in New Testament in a way that is both understandable and well-informed. It emphasizes many details that help students discover the biblical text in new ways they would rarely get on their own.' * <b> CRAIG S. KEENER, F. M. and Ada Thompson professor of biblical studies, Asbury Theological Seminary </b> * 'Few, if any, New Testament surveys can rival this one in terms of its multiple strengths: academic rigor, accessible and engaging style, and visual appeal. This balance means the text appeals equally to both students and professors--a rare accomplishment. The first edition was excellent; the revision is even better.' * <b> MARK L. STRAUSS, university professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary </b> * 'For years I have searched in vain for a book that would introduce students to the New Testament--with clear outlines, graphic images, historical contexts, timelines, maps, and bibliographies. My search is over; this is that book.' * <b> SCOT MCKNIGHT, professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary </b> * 'I've assigned The New Testament in Antiquity for years, with appreciation for the wealth of information the first edition offered students: photographs to help them visualize life in the New Testament world; sidebars with information on social, historical, and cultural backgrounds; quotations from primary sources; maps and charts galore. The new edition keeps these distinctives, but the revisions to the layout, organization, and the text itself make the volume even more accessible to students--including those with little preparation for the study of the New Testament. This comprehensive, comprehensible introduction is a valuable asset for the classroom.' * <b> C. A. REEDER, professor of New Testament, Religious Studies Department, Westmont College </b> * 'Since this is a text that has shaped my teaching for many years, I'm pleased to see the revised version retains its rigorous historical context, which has continually set an excellent foundation for informed theological conversation. The vivacity of a thorough revision guarantees that I and my students will remain exposed to the fresh wisdom and beauty of New Testament study.' * <b> AMY L. PEELER, associate professor of New Testament, Wheaton College and Graduate School </b> * 'What a welcome update to an already cutting-edge introduction to the New Testament! The strength of the first edition was its ability to make connections: connecting today's reader to the ancient Mediterranean world of the New Testament and connecting the best of academic research with the life and ministry of the church. This second revised edition maintains the connections of the first and improves upon them. It does not disappoint. Burge and Green have done a phenomenal job of connecting seminary students, undergraduates, pastors, and church leaders to the historically contingent and relevant message of the first-century authors so that modern interpreters can preach, teach, and apply that same message in our current contexts. It's an ideal textbook in many ways. I'm pleased to give The New Testament in Antiquity my highest recommendation. Well done!' * <b> MAX LEE, associate professor of New Testament, North Park University </b> *
