These essays on the state of New Testament studies in modern times are written in honor of respected scholar D. A. Carson.
This collection of essays examines the state of New Testament studies in contemporary times.
In our rapidly changing, postmodern culture, we desperately need men who understand the times and know what we ought to do. D. A. Carson is such a man. Renowned as a gifted speaker, writer, theologian, and pastor, Carson has written extensively and persuasively on a wide range of topics and has been a defender of the modern evangelical faith.
In appreciation of Carson’s life work, editors Andreas J. Köstenberger and Robert Yarbrough have assembled a team of contributors, including Stanley Porter, Grant Osborne, Mark Dever, John Woodbridge, Douglas Moo, Peter O’Brien, Eckhard Schnabel, Craig Blomberg, and David Pao, together to produce this volume of essays on New Testament studies in modern times. The book is divided into three parts: New Testament Studies and Ancillary Disciplines, Special Topics in New Testament Studies, and New Testament Studies Around the World. Pastors, professors, and students will benefit not only from the example of a man who understands the times, but also from the high quality of scholarship and wide variety of topics covered in this volume.
ANDREAS J. KÖSTENBERGER (PhD, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is professor of New Testament at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, the editor of the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, and the author of numerous books and articles in the field of New Testament studies.
ROBERT YARBROUGH (DPhil, University of Aberdeen) is professor of New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary after serving for many years as chair of the New Testament Department at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author of several books, including Engaging the New Testament.
“Don Carson is one of the most productive and capable evangelical scholars in the English-speaking world, and this volume by former students and teaching colleagues reflects the breadth of his interests and especially his concern for the development of biblical studies in a global context. Alongside fresh personal contributions to New Testament study, there are informative surveys of developments in New Testament studies in Africa and Asia, as well as in North America and Europe. This solid volume thus offers not only a worthy tribute to its honoree but also valuable assessments of the state of New Testament scholarship worldwide.”
—I. Howard Marshall, Professor Emeritus, University of Aberdeen, Scotland
“D. A. Carson is the Renaissance man of North American evangelicalism. He is a biblical scholar of the highest caliber, a preacher and evangelist of renown, and a theologian of unswerving commitment to the gospel. His teaching ministry has spanned the globe; in fact, I’ve heard his sermon on Matthew 27 on three different continents and found it equally stirring each time. This book is a snapshot of issues in the international New Testament scene as it stands today. This erudite collection of essays is rightly dedicated to one who has committed his life to serving the global church.”
—Michael F. Bird, Highland Theological College/UHI Millennium Institute
“This lively book of essays represents a fitting tribute to the life of Don Carson, one of the liveliest and most learned biblical scholars of our time. It will only suit its honoree, however, if it leads its varied readers to the Scriptures he has studied for so long, increasing devotion and fidelity to the gospel they proclaim. I pray that God will make this so for Jesus’ sake.”
—Douglas A. Sweeney, Associate Professor of Church History, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“This is a remarkable series of studies in honor of a remarkable man. Carson’s influence has been extraordinary, and this book explores a number of his particular interests with great skill.”
—Simon Gathercole, Lecturer in New Testament Studies, Cambridge University; editor, Journal for the Study of the New Testament
