What Are People Saying about this Title?
"With this third edition of her fine work, Dr. Pheme Perkins has taken a great book and made it still better?. Both teachers and students owe her a great debt for distilling the rich experience of a great teacher in a single book."
John P. Meier, University of Notre Dame
"This third revised edition of Reading the New Testament continues to make solid biblical scholarship accessible to a broad spectrum of readers...Already impressive for its longevity, this highly recommended book will continue to serve new readers for a long time to come."
John J. Pilch, Johns Hopkins University
"...for conciseness, clarity, and the ability to offer a balanced introduction to the literary, historical, and theological dimensions of the New Testament, the volume is unrivaled?.I can think of no other scholar today that I would rather have as a guide for my students as they begin their journey in understanding the New Testament."
