Additional Book Details

Featuring vibrant full color throughout, the sixth edition of Bart D. Ehrman's highly successful introduction approaches the New Testament from a consistently historical and comparative perspective, emphasizing the rich diversity of the earliest Christian literature. Distinctive to this study is its unique focus on the historical, literary, and religious milieux of the Greco-Roman world, including early Judaism. As part of its historical orientation, the book also discusses other Christian writings that were roughly contemporary with the New Testament, such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Apocalypse of Peter, and the letters of Ignatius.


A uniquely accessible and engaging writing style that vividly brings the New Testament story to life

Time lines, illustrations, maps, and more than 100 photos, including three photo essays

An extensive glossary of key terms, which appear in boldface type the first time they are used in each chapter
