This was one text book for my Introduction to the New Testament course at the University of South Carolina while I was working on my BA in Religious Studies back in 2005. Today I reordered it, realizing that though I read quite a bit, it is nice to have a basic introduction to concepts and the writings on hand. You can't remember everything. I think I only retained about 10% of some of those courses my freshman year, it was like drinking water from a fire-hose.
As for the review entitled "O ye of little faith!", please don't let this sway anyone for picking up this textbook for their personal education and spiritual growth. Just understand that the material is not devotional in nature, it is academic. I initially found that troubling when I began by studies coming from a conservative evangelical background. I had never looked at scripture critically. I had never been encouraged to. The topic and methodologies discussed in this text are those that every seminarian of most...
Anatomy of the NT is an excellent book for the beginning student or Christian who is looking to deepen his or her understanding of scripture. The format is easy to follow and understand. One unique feature is that the author has addressed pertinent questions about various biblical issues and then gives the reader an answer(s) based on many different findings (All of which are "bible" based.)
Obviously, AOTNT has been well received since it is already on its 6th edition and has been around for approximately 4 decades.
I picked up the 4th edition of this wonderful book quite by chance at a used book sale. I was thoroughly impressed by both it's scholarship and also the simple, easy-to-follow-along format in which the entirety of the NT was presented. That this book is published by McMillan and Co., a secular publisher, is equally surprising, and is indicative of how well-received this book has been by those never before exposed to the reality of the Biblical gospel message for today. If you want to better witness your faith Biblically to non-Christians, reading this book, next to your Bible, will give you the needed motivation and the "know-how." I strongly recommend this book!!
