More than an introduction, Johnson's comprehensive text is essential reading for anybody who wishes to understand the origin and shape of New Testament writings; the beginnings of their collection into a whole; their literary qualities; and their social context. The companion CD-ROM features searchable text, hyperlinks to the NRSV, study questions, and more.

Publishers Description
New technologies are revolutionizing research capabilities and pedagogical approaches. To meet the needs of an increasingly technology-savvy public, Fortress Press presents widely-used volumes in a new CD-ROM format. Features include: The complete, searchable text of the book; glossary hyperlinked to key words in the text; additional study questions; student helps for writing papers; internet links to additional resources; note-taking, bookmarking, and highlighting capabilities.

The completely revised and updated version of Johnson's very successful introduction to the New Testament (1999) is now available with a CD-ROM that contains the entire original text with copious searching and researching features, plus hyper-links to the NRSV. Johnson organizes his presentation in six major sections:

(1) The Symbolic World of the New Testament, (2) The Christian Experience, (3) The Synoptic Tradition, (4) Pauline Traditions, (5) Other Canonical Witnesses, and (6) The Johannine Tradition.

More About Luke Timothy Johnson & Todd C. Penner

Luke Timothy Johnson Professor Johnson's research concerns the literary, moral, and religious dimensions of the New Testament, including the Jewish and Greco-Roman contexts of early Christianity (particularly moral discourse), Luke-Acts, the Pastoral Letters, and the Letter of James. A prolific author, Dr. Johnson has penned numerous scholarly articles and more than 25 books. His 1986 book The Writings of the New Testament: An Interpretation, now in its second edition, is widely used in seminaries and departments of religion throughout the world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
writings in new testament  Mar 15, 2008
Probably the poorest written book on the Bible I have ever read/Johnson tries to rewrite the Bible and creates multiple distortions on the truth
Pleasant surprise  Mar 8, 2008
What a delightful surprise to find this book with CD, both in perfect condition, delivered on my door-step a week before anticipated.
Through and Informative  Jan 19, 2008
A very in-depth study of the New Testament. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to study the larger themes of the New Testament. Gives a good argument in favor of Pauline authorship (something that is often questioned when referring to Ephesians, Colossians, II Thessalonians, and especially the Pastoral Letters). This is a book that would be a good addition to anyone's Biblical library.
A Theological Introduction.   Apr 12, 2007
The thing I liked about Johnson's approach in his intro to the world of the New Testament is that it is more of a theological introduction. It provides a nice variation from the standard NT Intro (such as Carson and Moo) which deals more with the text critical issues such as authorship, date, provenances, etc. Instead, Johnson deals more with the larger issues of the NT and the larger issues of each book. Not that the typical issues aren't important but Johnson's work provides a nice complement to the standard NT Intro.

Johnson is Catholic, I am Protestant, however, I did not encoutner anything that I thought was unnecessarily pro-catholic or over the top. In fact, I found I agreed with most of what Johnson wrote and learned a few things in the process that greatly helped my understanding of the NT. I suppose this goes to show Catholics and Protestants have more they agree with about the Bible than things to disagree about.
Enjoyable textbook!  Apr 9, 2007
I bought this book because it is THE set text for "Studies in the New Testament", a unit in the MA (Theological Studies) course that I am currently undertaking. What a surprise: a readable, enjoyable textbook!
It has plenty of information, and is clear and accessible (there is a CD-ROM included). Above all, it is well written and really interesting - a book to keep and read for pleasure.
