5.0 out of 5 stars An Exhaustive and Invaluable Reference Work, January 6, 2001
This review is from: New Testament Introduction (Master Reference Collection) (Hardcover)
This New Testament Introduction is a monster volume that is exhaustive in its content. Guthrie's book is considered by many scholars (i.e. D. A. Carson, Wilbur Smith, etc.) to be one of, if not the best Introduction to the New Testament texts available. This book is a standard text book at seminaries all across the country. It was first published in 1961 and has been revised, updated, and also endured the test of time (which can be the strongest enemy of any book). Guthrie covers every possible detail from each of the books of the New Testament, including literary form, characteristics of NT writings, purpose, place of origin, dates, languages, historicity, locality, readers (then and now), Synoptic Problem, form criticism and its development, and much, much, much, much, more! This book is well over 1000 pages of great research. If you are looking for a single volume which covers the NT, then you would need to look no further than this text. The bibliography of this book is over 100 pages, which is massive and very helpful if you like to branch off in your research. It is equally useful for the serious researcher and the lay person alike. In fact I bought my copy about 7 years ago and have used it prior to my seminary career, during my seminary career, and I know I will use it for the rest of my researching days. In my estimation there is no other Introductory text that surpasses this one.
