This second edition of An introduction to the New Testament provides readers with pertinent material and a helpful framework that will guide them in their understanding of the New Testament texts. Many new and diverse cultural, historical, social-scientific, sociorhetorical, narrative, textual, and contextual studies have been examined since the publication of the first edition, which was in print for twenty years. The authors retain the original tripartite arrangement on 1) The world of the New Testament, 2) Interpreting the New Testament, and 3) Jesus and early Christianity. An appropriate book for anyone who seeks to better understand what is involved in the exegesis of New Testaments texts today.

University teacher and parish minister Puskas asked Robbins (religion and philosophy, Azusa Pacific U., California) to help revise the 1989 first edition of his introduction to the modern study of the New Testament. It covers the world of the New Testament, interpreting the New Testament, and Jesus and early Christianity. Among the topics are the Greco-Roman context, the Jewish world, the language of the New Testament, texts, the ancient letter genre, the message of Jesus, the major phases of early Christianity, and emerging Christian orthodoxy.
