This is an excellent text book for studying the literature that makes up what is known as the new testament, as well as formative 1st century christian origins. This textbook gives a very scholarly, level headed, well researched, even handed yet accessible study into historical, social, literary issues of the writings, as well as meanings and interpretive issues. A very useful textbook for learning about the writings of the new testament and the 1st century christian sect they stem from and represent.

The approach is helpful and informative to the average reader..My main criticism is the lack of a Bibliography after each chapter..I realize this would have made the book longer..Perhaps, a comprehensive Bibliography at the end of the book arranged in order by chapters

I found the information provided in this book to be very thought provoking. The historical side of Christianity is one you rarely hear mentioned within the modern church. But in reading this book the author is found to entertain many ideas involved in "modern criticism" that are much more philosophically related rather than truly historically related. Some of the author's statements are purely contradictory to all accepted Christian doctrine, thus throwing doubt onto other claims made by the author. At the same time the author never allows himself to entertain any commonly believed Christian views, further displaying his bias. I would not recommend this book because of the repeated failures to equally evaluate all potential views.
