Apr 13, Troy Nevitt rated it liked it. For a New Testament survey, it's fairly light, but it's helpful for beginners. Jun 12, Greg rated it liked it Shelves: bible , religious-studies. This is a standard text in more conservative Protestant seminaries. It is a systematic presentation of the New Testament.
The textbook does begin with a historical presentation of period but fails to put the text in its historical context and fails to account of the historical critical method and it massive impact of biblical studies in the twentieth century. Instead, he prefers a traditional approach to the texts and a Calvinist theological perspective. The general engagement with the lessons o This is a standard text in more conservative Protestant seminaries.
The general engagement with the lessons of modern scholarship is dismissive in tone. This is the text's greatest weakness. A basic Baptist reference work for the NT nothing special, nothing substantial. Also, the author apparently has been going off the deep end so I doubt it will be in use for much longer. Jan 25, Dave Weiss rated it it was amazing. I read this book for a New Testament Survey class, and I have to say it's wonderful.
After starting off studying the interpretive methods that are often applied to the New Testament, Robert Gundry dives into a book by book, letter by letter analysis that is both deep and comprehensible. This is a wonderful exploration of what is arguably the most important collection of tests ever compiled.
If you've ever wanted a better understanding of the New Testament, I highly recommend this book. It's a must for anyone desiring to teach God's Word. Aug 08, Paul Birch rated it liked it Shelves: theology. The beginning sections on historical and cultural context paint a winding narrative to introduce you to the survey.
These first sections are the best and I found I was skim reading the survey proper, which was lighter in content. Each book of the NT had a very informative section that added colour and context to the content of each book. This is a very engaging look at the New Testament.
It's accurate, concise, and informative. Very worth your while. Oct 27, Harold Cameron rated it it was amazing. In addition, comments on these readings help students with interpretation and follow "The 4th edition of this widely used guide to reading and interpreting the New Testament This revised edition of Gundry's Survey of the New Testament goes beyond providing background information and technical introductory material and leads students to read the New Testament itself.
If you are someone who is seeking a full-color, readable, and understandable New Testament Survey book written by someone who is a noted author and Biblical scholar, this book is for you. Gundry's Survey of the New Testament book is required reading for many Biblical courses taught at Bible Colleges, Universities and Seminaries all across our country, as it well should be. The information presented in Dr.
Gundry's book opens up the world of the New Testament to its readers providing accurate information concerning "People to Remember," "Places to Remember," and "Terms to Remember. He also includes a section at the end of each chapter that asks the question, "How Much Did You Learn? Another section in each chapter of his book is entitled "For Further Discussion" which is a section of the chapter intended to promote a healthy discussion of what you have read and learned in each chapter.
And he concludes each chapter of his book with a section entitled "For Further Investigation. All who use this book will find the information to be invaluable for further research and study of the material that's been covered in each chapter after finishing reading it. And one other helpful tool he offers the reader of his book are notes scattered throughout the entire book that share information about people, things people said, places, and objects of interest that relates to the material covered in the chapter.
So whether a student in a Bible college or Seminary, a pastor or ministry leader, or a student of the Scriptures who wants to learn more about the New Testament this is the book for you.
In it you will find a wealth of information that will most assuredly help you better understand the New Testament in a way like you have never been able to do so before so you can more effectively apply it in your every day lives as followers of Christ. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received the book at no cost from the Zondervan Publishing Company for review purposes.
I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. Mar 25, Dana rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: All Christians and anyone who wants to understand the NT.
I had to read this book for my NT Survey class. It serves as an excellent guide to studying the NT. It also sheds light on the intertestamental period linking the Old and New Testament times. History, culture, and language are all touched in each of the NT books as well as the chronology of the NT.
I am really glad I had to read this book and learned a lot from it. Even though it is a textbook it is not dry reading at all and I hope to go back through it again in the future when I can slow down I had to read this book for my NT Survey class.
Even though it is a textbook it is not dry reading at all and I hope to go back through it again in the future when I can slow down and enjoy it more! I highly recommend it! Aug 28, Nathaniel rated it really liked it. There is a lot of great historical background in this book. The thing that this book has going for it is the same thing that I did not like about it. I think that anytime I begin to study a new biblical book from now on, I will begin by reading the correlating chapter from Gundry.
Mar 26, Anna rated it it was amazing. This is a great book to expand the study of the New Testament. It explaines what was going on in history at the time the books were written. It gives insight into the lives of the authors of each book and what else was going on in the world at that time. A great way to expand the understanding of the books.
Jul 27, D. Gundry's NT survey is probably the first proper theology textbook I owned and read. A competent and workmanlike if dated overview of the New Testament, which partly explains its popularity and translation into many languages. Jul 26, Mike Jorgensen rated it liked it Shelves: christian. Pretty solid but not earth-shattering.
If you've ever read any set of commentaries or intro to the NT book then this one won't be very helpful but if this were used with a new Christian it would be highly effective. Sep 07, Gary rated it it was amazing Shelves: new-testament , reference.
Started reading, with yellow highlighter, as part of self study. Found a few college Syllabi online that use this book as primary text.

We are doing a group Bible study so I have not read the whole book yet but it gives lots of information I have always wondered about like why was Joseph's Jesus's earthly fathers lineage important.
