Product description

An Introduction to the Gospels and Acts offers a concise, readable study of the first five books of the New Testament. Charles Puskas and David Crump (1) clearly explain the need for a historical-critical study of the texts; (2) Summarize source, form, and redaction criticism; and (3) lead readers through the texts, highlighting the various literary devices and themes, pointing out the political and religious context, and offering the scholarly consensus on the sources. Puskas and Crump's coverage of the Gospels and Acts throughout is clear, comprehensive, and 2; with more than 300 endnotes 2; well documented. Evenhanded and nonpolemic, this book will be valuable both for those with a previous foundation of biblical study and for students with no background in reading the Bible.
