A Survey of Recent Research

THE FACE OF NEW TESTAMENT STUDIES brings together New Testament experts, including James D. G. Dunn, Bruce Chilton, David deSilva, Craig Evans, Craig Blomberg, Darrell Bock, Sean Freyne, and Donald Hagner, to track developments in their particular fields of research and to explain why those developments are important. The twenty-two contributors survey recent research into the historical, social, and literary contexts of the New Testament, recent advances in textual criticism and Greek grammar, and current issues in the interpretation of each New Testament book.

This book will be a timely reference for students and scholars of the New Testament as well as for pastors and interested readers who want to bring their awareness of New Testament studies up to date.

Author Information: Scot McKnight (Ph.D., University of Nottingham) is Karl A. Olsson Professor of Religious Studies at North Park University and the author of several books, including Turning to Jesus. Grant R. Osborne (Ph.D., University of Aberdeen) is professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and the author of several books, including Revelation (BECNT) and The Hermeneutical Spiral.

Endorsements: "McKnight and Osborne have prepared a very useful collection of essays by several leading biblical scholars on some of the most recent developments and trends in biblical scholarship. The range of these essays is impressive for both depth and readability. Most of the contributors are well known in their respective fields for their careful, critical scholarship and for their careful attention to the faith dimensions of their subject matter. Their contributions to this volume are of the same quality, care, and sensitivity. This excellent introduction to several important and often highly complex issues demonstrates the value of context for understanding the New Testament. Theological students, pastors, and most professors of biblical studies will profit from careful reading of this volume. The essays are well researched, relevant, and readable. I highly recommend this volume."--Lee M. McDonald, Acadia Divinity College

"This survey of recent New Testament research is very useful, giving an excellent overview of the development of scholarly New Testament work within the last decades, especially in the English-speaking world. It shows ways of sober and convincing exegesis but also warns of dangers like fashion, fancy, fundamentalism, and hypercriticism. The interested reader will receive plenty of valuable information."--Martin Hengel, University of Tubingen

"This excellent collection by a first-rate team of experts successfully orients readers to most of the major questions of the day. Although designed for students, it will also prove useful to scholars desirous of learning what has been going on outside their own narrow areas of specialization."--Dale C. Allison, Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

"Discouraged over knowing more and more about less and less? Overwhelmed by the deluge of books and articles, all of which you should read but most of which you know you never will--even though they fall within your field of interest? If so, buy this book. It will tell you what's happening in those innumerable other books and articles, and its authors form an all-star cast in their specialties. These essays are excellent for your education, both initial and continuing, in scholarly study of the New Testament."--Robert H. Gundry, Westmont College

"This book is a gold mine of up-to-date information on what is going on in current New Testament scholarship. Methods and specialization have proliferated to the point where pastors, students, and even professors are at a loss to keep abreast of the entire field. In twenty-two chapters, members of this international group of scholars provide fresh overviews of their areas of expertise. Written in a lucid, accessible style, this book will handsomely repay every reader."--Jack Dean Kingsbury, Aubrey Lee Brooks Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology, Union Theological Seminary, Virginia
