"In a world full of introductions to the New Testament, there is one that is the most user-friendly for college and beginning seminary students, as well as pastors and lay people. It is John Drane's wonderful Introducing the New Testament, now in its third edition. Unlike some who have produced such introductions, John knows the field well, is not prone to radical or quirky theories, and communicates on a level that anyone can understand. And unlike some introductions, the substance in the text is so good that the book doesn't have to be carried by its wonderful pictures and illustrations. Highly recommended!"
