The Cambridge Companion to the New Testament—Coming April 2021 (check out the TOC)

The Cambridge Companion to the New Testament—Coming April 2021 (check out the TOC) February 9, 2021

My friend Patrick Gray (Rhodes College) is editor of an exciting new project, The Cambridge Companion to the New Testament—24 chapters, 400 pages. It is a bit surprising to me that Cambridge had not already published a CCNT (after all, the volumes on Paul and the Gospels are now in second editions). But this looks to be a really impressive volume covering a range of the key issues and texts in New Testament studies.

Patrick was kind enough to share with me the full Table of Contents. I deeply appreciate that Cambridge has made this volume affordable in paperback ($35).
