New Testament Theology

Full Product Description

New Testament theology is essentially missionary theology,í writes I. Howard Marshall. It is the theology of Godís mission in sending Jesus and the theology of Jesusí followers as they engage in the mission of bearing witness to the gospel. In turn, this New Testament missionary theology shapes the continuing mission of the church.

Founded on the sure-footed mastery of the data that we have come to expect from I. Howard Marshall and constructed with clear thinking and sensible conclusions lucidly expressed, this long anticipated New Testament theology offers the insights born of a distinguished career of study, reflection, teaching and writing on the New Testament. Unencumbered with the heavy footnoting and interactions with scholarly literature that frequently inhibit the voice and accessibility of such works, Marshallís New Testament Theology will speak clearly to a broad audience of non-specialists. But even on the most familiar ground, where more informed readers might lower their expectations of learning anything new, Marshall offers a turn of phrase or a deft insight that sharpens our understanding of the New Testament.

Marshall does not succumb to the fashion of settling for an irreconcilable diversity of New Testament voices, but finds in these distinctive witnesses a unity expressed in diversity. ĎA synthetic New Testament theology is a real possibility, but it must begin with seeing each writer in his own terms,í he writes. Beginning with the Gospels and Acts, proceeding to each of Paulís letters, focusing then on the Johannine literature and finally looking at Hebrews and the remaining general epistles, Marshall repeatedly stops to assess the view. And gradually he builds up a composite synthesis of the unified theological voice of the New Testament.

On the way towards this synthesis, Marshall allows us to hear clearly the theological voices of the individual New Testament books. Thus his New Testament theology serves also as a sort of theological introduction to the New Testament books, making it an attractive complement to standard book-by-book New Testament introductions.

Here is a New Testament theology that will guide students with its close-up clarity as well as its comprehensive vision. It will delight teachers with its sterling summaries and perceptive panoramas. And it will reward expositors with a lavish fund of insights for preaching.
