In this companion volume to his widely-appreciated textbook Jesus and the Gospels, Craig Blomberg covers the rest of the New Testament, from the Acts of the Apostles to the book of Revelation.
Blomberg covers the most crucial matters of introduction in sufficient detail to provide the necessary background for correct interpretation of these New Testament texts. Mindful of the needs and interests of twenty-first-century students, he also deals with the structure and contents of each book, the main points in each section, the distinctive exegetical issues, and some key items of contemporary application. This clear, accessible and up-to-date survey includes numerous figures, maps and bibliographies.
Blomberg's goal is to enable his readers to come to a better understanding of first-century Christianity and the literature it produced that came to be treated as uniquely sacred. This will lead to a greater appreciation of the Lord Jesus Christ, worshipped by the early church, often in hostile circumstances and in the face of difficulties remarkably similar to those the church experiences today throughout the world. 592 pages, from IVP.
