Don Hagner on Faith, Criticism and Certitude in the New Testament
I have always appreciated Hagner's work and his commentary on Matthew is one that I turn to on a regular basis. But when I heard that he had published an Introduction to the New Testament I wondered why.I wasn't sure that we needed yet another introduction. It's not there is any one introduction that is final word. But there are just so many.
A couple of days ago Baker Academic, the publisher of Hagner's Introduction to the New Testament released two short video interviews with Hagner about the book. I am intrigued! I need to get a copy and read it. The first thing that caught my attention was when Don describes the way he demonstrates the connection between the Old and New Testaments and even includes a chapter on the Old Testament. It is that sort of approach to scholarship that has always made me appreciate Hagner's work. Now I need to get a copy of this book.
Here are the video interviews. Enjoy!
