Coming Soon from Zondervan - Introducing the New Testament

I posted earlier on an forthcoming abridgement of a major work done by Tom Schreiner. Here we have another abridgement of a standard New Testament introduction by D. A. Carson and Doug Moo. Coming from Zondervan in March 2010 is Introducing the New Testament edited by Andrew Naselli. I had the pleasure of having both Moo and Carson for teachers when I was at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

The catalog description follows:

"This book focuses on historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, and destination of the New Testament books. By focusing on the essentials, the authors ensure that each book is accurately understood within its historical settings. For each New Testament document, the authors also provide a summary of that book’s content and discuss the book’s theological contribution to the overall canon.

This abridgement includes questions at the end of each chapter to facilitate group discussion and personal review. It will help a new generation of students and church leaders better grasp the message of the New Testament."

The original work is a hardcover, has 781 pages and sells for $39.99. The abridgement will reduce that to 160 pages. It will be paperback and sell for $12.99.
