This reference work, which I will consult regularly, deserves a permanent place on the shelves of students and pastors until the next edition! Now in this second edition his discussion of the documents of the New Testament and related cultural, social, and historical issues continues to offer a clear and engaging general introduction to these topics that often add important details beyond a bare introduction.
Indeed, in this second edition he has deepened the discussion at many points based on his further research, evident in the numerous articles and books he has published since the first edition. The addition of colored photographs enhances the value of the photos considerably.
He retains distinctive attention to the pastoral issues reflected in the documents of this edition, a focus that is especially valuable for students preparing for ministry. His ministry formation sections are thoughtful exercises in engaging the issues raised by the texts and provide good starting points for debate and discussion. The twenty-six exegetical skills sections are another distinctive feature retained in this second edition, offering brief, clear introductions to the various skills used in the interpretation of the New Testament. In sum, this second edition enhances an already exceptional introduction to the New Testament that serves the general reader well and especially those preparing for ministry.
A lively and engaging text, it succeeds in blending top-notch scholarship with practical preparation for ministry. The book expertly uncovers the cultural, social, and rhetorical settings of the New Testament writings and teems with exegetical insights. In addition, deSilva explores a whole range of interpretive strategies and demonstrates them with biblical texts.
As a special feature, a must-read section on ministry formation crowns each chapter.
Ideal for a seminary classroom, this book also serves as a resource that pastors can turn to again and again. I heartily commend it! This is an engaging and well-written introduction that you will want to adopt for your classroom. David A. IVP Academic.
