The latest edition of THE NEW TESTAMENT: PROCLAMATION AND PARENESIS, like its predecessors, takes it primary orientation from recent developments in the social sciences. With reference to the most seminal anthropological models, sociological perspectives, and archaeological discoveries, this text provides a rigorous, yet readily engaging, introduction to the New Testament and the early development of the Christian faith. Incorporating, too, the most current hermeneutic schemes, this title illuminates the New Testament in the light of today's leading interpretive methodologies.
