Ladd's magisterial work on New Testament theology has well served thousands of seminary students since its publication in 1974. Enhanced and updated here by Donald A Hagner, this comprehensive, standard evangelical text now features augmented bibliographies and two completely new chapters on subjects that Ladd himself wanted to treat in a revised edition the theology of each of the Synoptic Evangelists and the issue of unity and diversity in the New Testament written, respectively, by R. T. France and David Wenham.
