This informative, clearly written book introduces the New Testament in two main ways: (1) it explains where the New Testament came from, and (2) it examines the New Testament writings themselves.

Ben Witherington first tells how and why the New Testament documents were written and collected and how they came to be known as the New Testament that we have today. He then discusses the main stories and major figures in the New Testament. Witherington looks particularly at the Gospels, examining how and why their stories differ and pointing out what these ancient biographies actually say about Jesus. He also surveys the ways that these stories were told and retold, explaining how this literary development has influenced Christian theology, ethics, and social thought.

At once scholarly and accessible -- it really is written in plain English -- Witheringtonbs guide to the origins and message of the New Testament is eminently suitable as a text for college and seminary students. With each chapter followed by a section called bExercises and Questions for Study and Reflection, b "The New Testament Story" will also prove valuable to individual readers and ideal for church classes and group Bible studies.
