Gladd, Benjamin L.; Köstenberger, Andreas J.; & Schreiner, Thomas R.
A leading evangelical scholar of the New Testament provides an easy-to-navigate resource for studying and understanding Hebrews through Revelation. Written with classroom utility and pastoral application in mind, this accessibly written volume summarizes the content of each major section of the biblical text to help students, pastors, and laypeople quickly grasp the sense of particular passages. The series, modeled after Baker Academic's successful Old Testament handbook series, focuses primarily on the content of the biblical books without getting bogged down in historical-critical questions or detailed verse-by-verse exegesis.
Andreas J. Köstenberger (PhD, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is research professor of New Testament and biblical theology and director of the Center for Biblical Studies at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri.
"Andreas Köstenberger's Handbook is immensely informative and eminently readable, helping students, pastors, and more generally readers of the New Testament acquire an in-depth understanding of an often neglected but highly important part of the Scriptures. It can be used as an introduction, a brief commentary, or a guide in one's personal reading of the Bible. I highly recommend this book." - Eckhard J. Schnabel, Mary F. Rockefeller Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; associate editor, Bulletin of Biblical Research
"It is no mean feat to strike a middle course between New Testament introduction and New Testament commentary: it is all too easy to succumb either to superficiality or to an inundation of details. Köstenberger masterfully steers through to produce a reading of the back end of the New Testament that is highly informative and highly readable. It offers tremendous help to students, pastors, and anyone else interested in understanding these books without getting stuck in the weeds." - Constantine R. Campbell, senior vice president of global content and Bible teaching, Our Daily Bread Ministries
"Here, finally, we have a volume on Hebrews to Revelation that is more detailed than a typical NT introduction but not as overwhelming as a commentary. With Andreas Köstenberger as a faithful and steady guide, the reader gets a top-notch analysis of all the key passages without being bogged down by mountains of information--a wonderful balance that will surely make this volume a must-have tool for all Christian leaders."- Michael J. Kruger, president and professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary
