n Neotestamentica - Invitation to the New Testament: First Things, Ben Witherington III - book review

Volume 53 Number 3
  • ISSN : 0254-8356
  • E-ISSN: 2518-4628


The list of available elementary introductions to the NT is long and varied, and instructors searching for just the right text book for their Introduction to the New Testament course are hard pressed to make the right selection. What speaks in favour of the present volume? It offers an easy to read, comprehensive and inspiring example of this genre. Witherington, a senior North American NT scholar with an impressive array of publications to his name, provides a balanced overview of the current discussion. The positions that he argues fall in the evangelical half of NT scholarship and reflect the emphases of his previous contributions to the field, for instance, his sociorhetorical commentaries on several books of the NT.
