About Beginner's Guide To New Testament Studies

Product Description This accessible and balanced introduction helps readers sort out key views on the most important debated issues in New Testament studies. Well-known New Testament scholar Nijay Gupta fairly presents the spectrum of viewpoints on thirteen topics and offers reflections on why scholars disagree on these matters. Written to be accessible to students and readers without advanced training in New Testament studies, this book will serve as an excellent supplementary text for New Testament introduction courses. From the Back Cover Understanding Key Debates in New Testament Studies"This 'beginner's guide' is marked by a wise choice of crucial, controversial topics, accurate sketches of the perspectives of the major thinkers on the topics, judicious and open-handed appreciation of all there is to be learned, and, at the same time, student-sensitive reflections on how each topic matters for life and ministry. Bravo!" -- Scot McKnight, Northern Seminary "Gupta is true to his title in A Beginner's Guide to New Testament Studies. His writing is thoroughly accessible and highly engaging, and it doesn't presume prior knowledge of the field of New Testament studies. Gupta provides a bird's-eye view of key issues in the field--from the historical Jesus, to Paul and the law, to New Testament application today. Gupta fairly portrays scholars on different sides of an issue and provides a final reflection of his own for each chapter. For anyone wanting an entrée to New Testament studies, this is the book for you." -- Jeannine Brown, Bethel Seminary, San Diego and St. Paul "Right off the bat, I was asking myself into which of my classes I could incorporate this book. As I continued reading, however, I soon began to wonder if it was possible to incorporate it into all of them. With each chapter I read, I honestly thought, This chapter alone is worth the price of the book. The content is clear and evenhanded and is as comprehensive as possible while remaining appropriately concise. In addition to that, it's remarkably relevant, engaging, and fun." -- Joseph R. Dodson, Denver Seminary "Surveying the issues of debate in New Testament studies can be a daunting task. Fortunately, Gupta has taken complex topics and laid them out in a palatable way, one that even the novice can understand and appreciate. In the end, the reader is left with an effective roadmap for navigating the rich and intricate field of New Testament studies." -- Jeanette Hagen Pifer, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University "This is a really helpful book. As an undergrad professor, I am often looking for a brief introduction to contested issues in New Testament studies that explains our academic debates to students in an accessible way. Gupta does this time and again in this work. It is a welcome resource to supplement New Testament introductions, which often lack the space to deal with issues in detail." -- Esau McCaulley, Wheaton College About the Author Nijay K. Gupta (PhD, Durham University) is professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary. He founded the popular blog Crux Sola and is the author of numerous books, including Worship That Makes Sense to Paul, A Beginner's Guide to New Testament Studies, and commentaries on Galatians, Philippians, Colossians, and 1 and 2 Thessalonians. Gupta lives in Portland, Oregon.
