"A remarkable achievement"
"The vast number of studies on the New Testament can lead to despair, but these essays come to the rescue. They provide an entry point for the major topics, summarize the breadth of the contributions (both the helpful and the unusual), and provide the bibliographic resources by which one may proceed."
--Klyne Snodgrass, North Park Theological Seminary (emeritus)
"As the fleet of specialized disciplines within New Testament studies sails forward into waters unknown, we need to know where we've come from, where we're heading, and what kind of boat we're in. Thankfully, McKnight and Gupta have marshaled an impressive and diverse array of scholars who can give us an updated report from the crow's nest."
--Nicholas Perrin, Trinity International University
