Description

This is a new edition of the late Bishop Neill's widely acclaimed book, revised, expanded, and brought up to date by his former colleague the Revd Tom Wright. This masterly survey now describes the historical development of New Testament criticism from 1861 (the year Lightfoot became Hulsean Professor of Divinity at Cambridge) to the present day, the contrasting personalities of scholars, and the permanent contributions made by various schools. The study concludes with a new chapter by Tom Wright, covering New Testament scholarship of the last twenty five years.show more

Review quote

'This volume provides the kind of textual stimulus that scripture demands. It will help those who turn to the New Testament for the hope of grace. It is a good read. I recommend it as a book of the year. Any year.' J.B. Taylor, Christian 95/2 - Passiontide - 1995 'I recommend ... Anyone interested in Jesus will want to know not only his story, but how we have come to read (or misread) that story.' Denis Hickey, Cypress College in Southern California, National Catholic Reporter 'The book is very readable and well written throughout.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament 38 (1990) 'It is written with an enviable clarity. Both Neill and Wright have the rare gift of being able to simplify without being simplistic. It is also compulsively readable.' Edward Donnelly, Reformed Theological Journal 'the republication of this book in the form of a new updated edition is very much to be welcomed' Churchman 'Admirers of Stephen Neill will be grateful that this book is available once more' Christopher Rowland, New Blackfriars 'Wright's chapter flows well and offers a helpful and judicious estimate of the issues in New Testament study in the last 25 years. It will ensure a prolonged life for Bishop Neill's work.' John Morgan-Wynne, Baptist Times 'valuable survey' Expository Times 'Wright's chapter flows well and offers a helpful and judicious estimate of the issues in New Testament study in the last 25 years. It will ensure a prolonged life for Bishop Neill's work.' John Morgan-Wynne, Baptist Times 'Admirers of Stephen Neill will be grateful that this book is available once more.' Christopher Rowland, New Blackfriars 'his attention to the personalities of the scholars involved ... makes Bishop Neill's classic history of a century of New Testament interpretations of absorbing interest' Times Literary Supplementshow more
