Following his well-received Apostle Paul, prominent European scholar Udo Schnelle now offers a major new theology of the New Testament. The work has been translated into English from the original German, with bibliographic adaptations, by leading American scholar M. Eugene Boring.

^^This comprehensive critical introduction combines historical and theological analysis. Schnelle begins with the teaching of Jesus and continues with a discussion of the theology of Paul. He then moves on to the Synoptic Gospels; the deutero-Pauline, catholic, and Johannine letters; and Revelation, paying due attention to authorship, chronology, genre, and canonical considerations. This is an essential book for anyone with a scholarly interest in the New Testament.

Udo Schnelle (Dr.Theol., University of Gottingen) is professor of New Testament at the University of Halle in Germany. He is the author of numerous works, including History and Theology of the New Testament Writings, and Apostle Paul^His Life and Theology translated and revised by M. Eugene Boring.



- Publisher Longer version of Aune:"Theologies of the New Testament, a flourishing genre through the 1960s, began to appear again in the 1990s, primarily in Germany and the United States. Producing a New Testament theology, which necessarily involves a synthesis of scholarship on all aspects of the New Testament, is notoriously problematic in scope, structure, and method. Schnelle's Theology of the New Testament is, in my view, perhaps the most methodologically sophisticated and theologically significant contribution to the genre in the past twenty years. Fully aware of developments in modern historiography, he rejects as illusory the claim that the New Testament can be read from a neutral, external perspective and similarly rejects as misleading dichotomies the traditional distinctions between fiction and nonfiction and between the historical Jesus and the Christ of faith. 'Jesus of Nazareth: The Near God' is the common center for his informed and insightful elaboration of the thought of New Testament theology in the context of a contemporary understanding of reality. The author's critical acumen and theological sensitivity, as well as his obvious control of both primary and secondary literature, make this book a necessary addition to the library of every serious student of the New Testament and an ideal text for advanced courses."--David E. Aune, Walter Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins, University of Notre DameShorter version of Aune:"Schnelle's Theology of the New Testament is, in my view, perhaps the most methodologically sophisticated and theologically significant contribution to the genre in the past twenty years.

Aune, Walter Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins, University of Notre Dame"A magnificent achievement. Udo Schnelle's Theology of the New Testament comprises philosophical reflection, reconstruction of earliest Christian thought, and a history of biblical interpretation. At heart, however, the volume offers meticulous analysis of the New Testament's varied constituents. The exegesis is well balanced; the conclusions, sound. Like its subject matter, this investigation gathers most of what is important from previous works and points the way toward a constructive future. Schnelle's magnum opus will stand as one of the twenty-first century's few indispensable works in the field."--C. Clifton Black, Otto A. Piper Professor of Biblical Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary"Fresh, invigorating, enlightening, and occasionally provocative, this survey of New Testament theology serves well as a handbook of informed discussion of the crucial issues. With the confident hand of a seasoned scholar and a refreshing openness to the transcendent, Schnelle guides the reader book by book through the canon, using the familiar categories of systematic theology to ensure comprehensive coverage. Here is not only outstanding German scholarship but also an entry into contemporary German discussion via exceptionally rich footnotes."--Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
