Bethlehem To Patmos
Full Product Description
'I am thrilled that Paul Barnett's time-honoured orientation to the New Testament will continue to find an audience with this new edition. In an age in which religion is frequently evaluated by the sound-bytes of its most eccentric representatives, it is essential to find a reliable guide to the actual documents that underlie the Christian faith. Barnett's familiarity with the documents, sane historical judgement, and engaging storytelling make him just such a guide. The work moves swiftly from the events that opened the New Testament era to those that brought it to a close.
Along the way, Barnett shows how these events relate to scholarly understanding of the era, what was at stake in interpreting and committing these events to writing, and why these events continue to have significance. The book is immensely useful as a solid orientation for students of the New Testament, and I commend it gladly.' - Matthew R. Malcolm, Head of New Testament, Trinity Theological College, Western Australia

Bethlehem To PatmosGraham Wise, via The Good Book Stall
This is a very welcome revised and enlarged edition of Paul Barnett's masterly and immensely informative guide to the formation of the New Testament. Written in such a style that once you start reading you don't want to put the book down, Barnett tells the story, not only of the text itself but the social and political background of the time. Here is the storyline of the New Testament written in a highly readable and attractive style. Here is a reliable guide to the documents that eventually became accepted as the canon of Scripture and, equally importantly, a detailed examination of the people and events which shaped it. Barnett presents the facts, shows how they relate to a scholarly understanding of the era, what the early Christians faced in recording them, and why the texts and events continue to be significant. Here is a book that will be a welcome and extremely useful addition to the study shelves of preachers and others.
