To Advance the Gospel: New Testament Studies
In this greatly expanded second edition of To Advance the Gospel, Joseph A. Fitzmyer has added eight new studies of important Pauline and Lucan topics not part of his original work. Together these nineteen essays consider a number of major issues in the study of the New Testament as well as in the life of the church today. Readers will find discussions of such themes as the priority of Mark and the "Q" source in Luke, crucifixion in ancient Palestine, the gospel in the theology of Paul, the ascension of Christ and Pentecost, and the resurrection of Christ according to the New Testament.
