Starting NT study (or any discipline’s study) immediately confronts the students with names and issues and debates and polemics and terms and movements and reactions… well, it’s overwhelming for most.
Some relish the story but many wonder “What’s of value here?” and then say, “Tell me what’s important.”
Some wonder if they’ve gotten into too much.
Some wander around for years wondering if there’s a book that explains these debates.
There now is. It’s up to date, it’s accessible, and it’s got the right issues.
