The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings
OverviewThis introduction approaches the New Testament from an historical and comparative perspective, emphasizing the rich diversity of the earliest Christian literature. Bart Ehrman addresses the historical and literary challenges and shows why scholars continue to argue over such significant issues as how the books of the New Testament came into being, who produced them, what they mean, how they relate to contemporary Christian and non-Christian liteature, and how they came to be collected into a canon of Scripture. Distinctive to this study is its emphasis on the historical, literary, and religious milieu of the Greco-Roman world, including early Judiasm. As part of its historical orientation, this text also discusses works by other Christian writers who were roughly contemporary with the New Testament, such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Apocalypse of Peter, the letters of Ignatius.
