Saldarini, New York Times Book Review "A tour de force."-America From the experience of a lifetime of scholarship, preaching, teaching, and writing, Raymond E.

Brown covers the entire scope of the New Testament with ease and clarity.

He walks readers book by book through the basic content and issues of the New Testament.

While a wealth of information is contained in these pages, the work's most impressive features are the basic summaries of each book, a historical overview of the ancient Greco-Roman world, discussions of key theological issues, and the rich supplementary materials, such as illustrative tables, maps, bibliographies, and appendixes.

Using this basic data, Brown answers questions raised by today's readers, relates the New Testament to our modern world, and responds to controversial issues, such as those raised by the Jesus Seminar. Every generation needs a comprehensive, reliable Introduction to the New Testament that opens the biblical text to the novice.

Raymond E. Brown's An Introduction to the New Testament is the most trustworthy and authoritative guidebook for a generation seeking to understand the Christian Bible. Universally acknowledged as the dean of New Testament scholarship, Father Brown is a master of his discipline at the pinnacle of his career.

Who else could cover the entire scope of the New Testament with such ease and clarity?

This gifted communicator conveys the heartfelt concern of a beloved teacher for his students, as he walks the reader through the basic content and issues of the New Testament.

Those opening to the New Testament for the first time and those seeking deeper insights could not ask for more in a primer to the Christian Bible.
