For Review: The New Testament: A Historical and Theological Introduction

I just returned from the annual Society of Biblical Literature meeting in Chicago, where I met a lot of people—both new and old. One of people I had the pleasure to meet in person was Bryan Dyer of Baker. He was kind enough to pass along a review copy of Don Hagner’s The New Testament: A Historical and Theological Introduction. I look forward to this gem from one of my favorite NT scholars. As an added bonus, I got to meet Dr. Hagner and he was kind enough to sign my copy of his book.

 

 

 

I leave you with this quote:

The Bible is God’s gift to the church. Its contents are acknowledged by the church as uniquely inspired by God and revealed to human authors through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The NT provides the church not only with the founding story of its incarnate Lord and salvation accomplished by him but also with a key provision for its ongoing sustenance and guidance. For the church, therefore, Scripture is unique, holy, and possesses irreplaceable, infallible, canonical authority.
Hagner, 3.
