Why did I love this book?
A one-stop shopping introductory textbook that covers every angle. I use it for MA students who can only take one semester of New Testament studies, but it is designed for upper-division undergraduates as well. This multi-color work is filled with stunning photography, helpful charts and diagrams, fascinating sidebars, goals for reading each chapter and questions for review. Oxford-based Wright may be the world’s leading New Testament scholar and Bird is a prolific Australian with a great sense of humor. Both are good friends and Christians with integrity.
