Although Scripture cannot be reduced to a mere piece of human writing, there is much to gain by paying careful attention to the historical, literary, and theological dimensions of the biblical text. For this reason, "The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown "is offered to the serious New Testament student who seeks to better understand and share God's "word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15). Across nearly one thousand pages, it thoroughly introduces all twenty-seven New Testament books and closely examines Christ's incarnation and virgin birth, the heart of His ministry shown so vividly in the Gospels' Passion Narratives, and the triumphant return of Jesus and our eternal reign with Him as depicted in Revelation.
"Simply an outstanding work. Its up-to-date research alone makes "The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown" an invaluable resource. Add to this its comprehensive survey of the crucial issues related to New Testament studies, and you have a textbook well suited for the college or seminary classroom."
--Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC
"Among the finest such studies of recent decades in classic matters of New Testament introduction. What sets it apart includes: (1) attention to theology and the history of interpretation; (2) extended presentation of the history of New Testament times and the rise of the canon; (3) appropriate rigor; (4) frequently creative layout features; and (5) conceptual clarity. Beyond an impressive digest of scholarship, it is an appeal to faithful appropriation of the New Testament's message."
--Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament and department chair, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, IL
"Clear, thorough, up to date, and engaging all the contemporary alternatives people are putting forward . . . discerning and judicious. Well done and highly recommended."
--Darrell L. Bock, research professor of New Testament, Dallas Theological Seminary, Dallas, TX
""The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown" sets a new standard for excellence among textbooks dealing with New Testament introduction (and) offers a veritable gold mine of information often found only in several texts. A distinctively unique textbook that displays not only careful and balanced scholarship, but is lucidly written and Ouser friendly."
--Richard D. Patterson, emeritus professor, Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA
