    1. A Biblical-Theological Introduction to the New Testament: The Gospel Realized is the second Bible introduction released this year from RTS scholars both past and present. As with the OT volume, this introduction is designed for all Christians and unafraid of reading the Bible as a whole and with theological presuppositions.Each New Testament book receives its own chapter (even Philemon), except surprisingly, 1 and 2 Corinthians are joined and, less surprisingly, 1-3 John are joined. There are al [...]

    2. RTS and Crossway have teamed up to provide a beautiful collection of essays that survey the entirety of the New Testament. Subtitled “The Gospel Realized,” this volume pairs well with the Old Testament volume, and contributions from Robert Cara, Guy Waters, Michael Kruger, Simon J. Kistemaker, and others provide the reader with a New Testament flyover that somehow manages to cover each book with significant depth while remaining relatively concise and quite approachable.This volume is explic [...]

    3. Christ. Kingdom. Unity. These three words summarize the Christian worldview regarding the message of Scripture.

Unity describes how Christ and kingdom are presented from Genesis to Revelation. Rather than each book standing on its own, disjoin [...]

    4. A wonderful introduction to the New Testament. Far less technical than many of them but with enough background to be well versed in some of the scholarly discussions. I appreciated the emphasis on providing information necessary to preach through each NT book. Easy to read and well written. Most, if not all contributing authors, are professors at various RTS campuses which gives it the potential shortcoming of not being a very diverse lot of scholars.

    5. I loved reading through this. Academic but edifying and devotional. It covers a lot and whatever it does not cover it has reference to other books for further study. Also has a great balance of opposing views, secular thought with biblical responses.

    6. I have owned or own numerous single volume or collected sets of introductions to the Bible. Some have been quite helpful in my studies, personal or academic, and others have been shall we say a bit lackluster and somewhat disappointing. Given the plethora of biblical introduction style commentaries that have made their way in and out of the market, I am always interested to see what a new addition has to offer, if anything, to the discussion. Recently, two such additions made their way to the ne [...]
