Featuring vibrant full color throughout, A Brief Introduction to the New Testament, Third Edition, is a concise version of Bart D. Ehrman's best-selling The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings, Fifth Edition. Retaining the approach of the longer textbook while condensing and simplifying much of its material, this volume looks at the New Testament from a consistently historical and comparative perspective and emphasizes the rich diversity of the earliest Christian literature. Distinctive to this study is its emphasis on the historical, literary, and religious milieux of the Greco-Roman world, including early Judaism. The text incorporates a wealth of pedagogical resources including an extensive text box program, study questions, maps, timelines, and more than seventy photos (including two photo essays). A comprehensive glossary contains more than 200 key terms; these terms appear in boldface type the first time they are used in each chapter and are also listed at the end of each chapter in which they appear. Reflecting recent changes in scholarship, the third edition features: * New "Take a Stand" boxes at the end of each chapter that help students synthesize the material * New text boxes on textual criticism, forgery, the historical Jesus, and non-canonical texts * Updated and expanded bibliographies * An updated Student Website containing chapter summaries, key terms, guides for reading, and self-quizzes 2* An updated Instructor's Manual that provides summaries, pedagogical suggestions, and a test bank Ideal for undergraduate and seminary classes in the New Testament, Biblical Studies, and Christian Origins, A Brief Introduction to the New Testament, Third Edition, is an engaging and accessible introduction that encourages students to consider the historical issues surrounding these writings. A FREE 6-month subscription to Oxford Biblical Studies Online (www.oxfordbiblicalstudies.com)-a $180 value-is available with the purchase of every new copy of this text!

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Ehrman's brief introduction is exceptionally student-friendly because of its concise treatment of the New Testament and the clarity with which it explains scholarly approaches to the text. Given its clarity, accessibility, and Ehrman's wonderful prose, it's hardly surprising that this textbook is a first choice for so many instructors."--Nicole Kelley, Florida State University


"The overall quality of the text is outstanding. My students unanimously report that it is the only textbook they have that they do not fall asleep reading, and many of them choose not to sell it back to the bookstore at the conclusion of the term."--Davina C. Lopez, Eckerd College


"Ehrman writes in a way that expresses the ideas clearly, succinctly, and directly. I think students will connect with the content much more easily because of his writing style."--Kathryn Valdivia, University of San Diego and Cuyamaca College
