Featuring vibrant full color throughout, the sixth edition of Bart D. Ehrman's highly successful introduction approaches the New Testament from a consistently historical and comparative perspective, emphasizing the rich diversity of the earliest Christian literature. Distinctive to this study is its unique focus on the historical, literary, and religious milieux of the Greco-Roman world, including early Judaism. As part of its historical orientation, the book also discusses other Christian writings that were roughly contemporary with the New Testament, such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Apocalypse of Peter, and the letters of Ignatius. FEATURES A uniquely accessible and engaging writing style that vividly brings the New Testament story to life Time lines, illustrations, maps, and more than 100 photos, including three photo essays An extensive glossary of key terms, which appear in boldface type the first time they are used in each chapter

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is the best New Testament intro book for college students, hands down. * Yonder Moynihan Gillihan, Boston College *
Ehrman does a great job giving historical, religious, social, and literary background and also demonstrating various methodologies for students. * Tim Vivian, California State University, Bakersfield *
The New Testament is truly a remarkable accumulation of scholarship. Ehrman's ability to convey a message to students, of all levels, is unsurpassed by any other secondary source or textbook. * Randall W. Holste, Wake Technical Community College *
This is an attractively produced student textbook, well explained and illustrated and with questions to discuss and answer ... its value for teachers and students is shown by the fact that it has gone through so many editions. * David Wenham, Journal for the Study of the New Testament *
