    One thought on “A Survey of the New Testament”

    1. 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 [...]

    2. 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 mu [...]

    3. "The 4th edition of this widely used guide to reading and interpreting the New TestamentThis 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. Whenever possible general questions of introduction and background are tied to assigned readings covering the entire New Testament. In addition, comments on these readings help students with interpretation and follow [...]

    4. 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 [...]

    5. 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. that is, it feels a lot like a junior high text book in it's layout, but at the same time because of the layout it is easy to find particular information concerning a biblical book. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. 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.

    8. 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.

    9. Started reading, with yellow highlighter, as part of self study. Found a few collegeSyllabi online that use this book as primary text. Am only 20 years behindMy goal of learning historical bible to match my keen interest in theological issuesgo hand in hand.

    10. One of the most wonderful textbooks I have ever had. I read it during a three-week class from cover to cover, and I kept it because it was such a helpful, well-written tool to help me understand the NT.

    11. Pretty good introductory material for the 27 books of the New Testament. This is not a commentary, but background material and brief synopses of the books.

    12. Very good and essential in understanding the New Testament context. If anyone wants to read whole New Testament this book would be a great help and could serve like a devotional reading too.

    13. Great reference, I used this in school, and recently purchased it for logos bible software program. I recommend this if you do NT Survey.

    14. Great pictures = make the book amazing!1st really big book that I enjoyed. Great explanations of the New Testament books.

    15. A bit disappointing for a survey. Wished it had more depth, probably will never have a need to reference this book, but was required for my class.
