Item Description...
Part of the Century series - each book reviews and summarises the key developments in a particular branch of religious studies during the past century. Great changes have taken place during the past one hundred years. This is no less true of New Testament study than it is of the wider sphere of social and political life. This book not only presents a detailed survey of all the major, and many of the lesser, New Testament studies of the time, but also attempts to relate the changes in approach to the broad socio-political and international sphere. The book starts with a review of the achievements of Biblical studies to the end of the nineteenth century, and then turns to the work of the History of Religions school in Germany and reactions to it elsewhere. There follows a survey of developments leading up to the work of R. Bultmann, and then a series of detailed studies of the major post-war works in the field of Jesus, Paul, Mark and John. The book concludes with a review of recent discussions of the nature of New Testament theology. Central to the book is Bultmann's attempt to reconcile critical, historical and theological New Testament studies, and the ultimate failure of that synthesis. Reviewing recent developments and considering the future of New Testament theology, the author asks whether the time has not come for a similar attempt to integrate modern approaches to the subject.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
New Edition?  Aug 27, 2007
John Riches' A Century of New Testament Study is one of several excellent works on the History of New Testament Scholarship, being especially strong on the contribution of German scholarship.

Since every book inevitably chooses to focus on certain people and exclude others, however, it is best read alongside other contributions to the history of NT scholarship such as Kümmel, R. Morgan, Neil/Wright and Baird.

The PROBLEM with the 2nd Edition, however, is that it is unclear whether or not it exists. According to the page on this site, there is a 2nd edition, published in 2000, which has 192 pages. In view of this information, one would assume that it differs from the 1993 edition, which has 246 pages. In view of this information, I have ordered this edition on 2 different ocassions. Unfortunately, I have received the 1993 edition on both ocassions. Moreover, I have not yet received any indication that this site has refunded my previous order. In view of these difficulties, I hope that this site will investigate whether or not there is a 2nd edition and adjust its advertising and shipping process accordingly.

Notwithstanding these difficulties, I have given the book 5 stars, since the 1993 edition, which I have read, is a gem.
