Reviews - What do our customers think?
An excellent introduction  Feb 27, 2007
This is a very learned and useful summary of the NT. Although one could write much more -- and scores have -- about each of the books of the NT, this work is a very useful overview which encompasses a large amount of basic theological work regarding the NT. The only drawback is that it occasionally betrays the German origin, in that the translator has not fully changed the structure of sentences and paragraphs into those more familiar to a native English reader. This is however a very small disadvantage compared with the concentrated scholarship that comes with the book. It belongs in every NT library or collection.
Probably the best introduction to the NT  Oct 1, 2006
This work is not a popular book addressed to the masses who can't read a Greek work or are not interested in academic books. It has no general introduction to the NT background, literary criticism, etc. (German theology students normally first study, besides languages, some books on the NT background and also some on exegesis such as the classic Conzelamnn and Lindemann's Arbeitsbuch zum Neuen Testament or more recent books such as Schnelle's Einführung in die neutestamentliche Exegese or Roloff & Müller's Neues Testament). Schnelle's present book does have an introductory chapter, but it deals critically with the previous German and English books on the same subject (French books such as Daniel Marguerat's Introduction au Nouveau Testament are omitted).
Most chapters of this book deal with one book/epistle of the NT. Each chapter has the same, very well organised structure. The major theories and arguments are discussed, everything is well exposed. Greek words are written with Greek font, making them a pleasure to read, and likewise for the few Hebrew words. The exposition is excellent.

This book surpasses any other book I have read by its clarity, readability and balance. It is really a scientific work. It is required reading for any student of theology in Germany (even including German fundamentalist evangelical seminaries, although these may better served than their American counterparts with Erich Mauerhofer's Einleitung in die Schriften des NT).

I have actually read it in the German original (4th revised edition, 2002). Unfortunately the English translation is based on an older edition. Masterful books like Schnelle's show that Germans are still the best at Christian theology and that anyone seriously interested has to learn German to read such books...

For those who want to go further, there is a book I like very much on the making of the canon, Lee McDonald's The Formation of Christian Biblical Canon (2nd rev. ed. ) and is going to be superseded by the author's new book : The Biblical Canon: its Origin, Transmission, and Authority (scheduled for Nov. 2006).
Reliable reference book  Jun 19, 2003
While this books addresses New Testament theology, the author avoids political motivations and attempts to focus on facts and scholarship. The reader is offered concise known facts on each New Testament book and general information consensus on each book, if any, from respected scholars. Conclusions from the data may be drawn as desired. An extensive bibliography on each book encourages additional study. In other words, this is a balanced and reliable reference book worth collecting.
