Description

Watch Luke Timothy Johnson discuss his new book, Writings of the New Testament: Third Edition


Luke Timothy Johnson offers a compelling interpretation of the New Testament as a witness to the rise of early faith in Jesus. Critically judicious and theologically attuned to the role of the New Testament in the life of the church, Johnson deftly guides his reader through a wealth of historical and literary description and invites critical reflection on the meaning of these ancient writings for today. The third edition is carefully updated and includes new student-friendly format and features, including a new design and study and reflection questions. Other resources for teachers and students, including different suggestions for teaching from or alongside the textbook, are available under the other tabs on this page.

Endorsements

"This third edition of Johnson's interpretive introduction to the writings of the New Testament is an excellent vade mecum for all readers of that Testament—for general readers, college students, and teachers of biblical studies."
—Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J.
Professor Emeritus, Biblical Studies
Catholic University of America


"Luke Johnson's text is a compelling account of the birth and growth of early Christian faith in Jesus. Challenging yet eminently accessible, it is an exceptional classroom tool for bridging the gap between the writings of the early church and the modern reader. This new edition only improves on an already excellent academic resource."
—Robert Cleveland
Saint Joseph's University


"The Writings of the New Testament has long served to introduce students to the rich historical and literary background of the New Testament. Johnson?s enduring contribution is his consistent use of this knowledge in the service of understanding the New Testament texts. His clear and insightful interpretation serves as a model for students as they gain skills for their own interpretive work. The discussion of teaching and the expanded study questions, both new to this edition, are excellent resources for teachers who wish their students to engage the meaning of the texts as well as the critical questions of scholarship.
—Susan E. Hylen
Assistant Professor of New Testament
