Shelf Life Book Review: Introducing the New Testament

Heather M. Brooks

Introducing the New Testament
Zondervan, 2010


This study is a condensed version of an earlier volume by the same title. Authors D.A. Carson and Douglas J. Moo explain that this shorter version is more “user-friendly” for a wider audience.

The book is divided into 26 chapters and contains discussions of the four Gospels, the letters of Paul, and the writings of the other apostles. Each chapter devotes sections to the books’ authorship, time frame, audience and other issues.

Both new and longtime Christians will find this introduction helpful. The authors have also included lists of suggested further readings for beginning, intermediate and advanced users.
