Faith, Criticism, and Certitude in The New Testament

About the book

This substantial introduction explores the origin and character of the New Testament writings. Donald Hagner deals with the New Testament both historically and theologically, employing the framework of salvation history. He treats the New Testament as a coherent body of texts and stresses the unity of the New Testament without neglecting its variety. Although the volume covers typical questions of introduction–such as author, date, background, and sources–it focuses primarily on understanding the theological content and meaning of the texts.

“This is not just another ‘who wrote, to whom, where, and why’ introduction to the New Testament. It is as comprehensive a study of the New Testament writings in the context of Christianity’s beginnings as one could wish for in a single volume, including astonishingly full and helpful bibliographies. Don Hagner’s The New Testament is a showpiece of high-quality evangelical scholarship.”-James D. G. Dunn
