Synopsis: This book offers important new case studies in understanding the theology and praxis of mission in the New Testament and in reading the New Testament for mission. Significant scholars from around the world explore aspects of the missional theology of the Gospels, Acts, Paul, Hebrews, and Revelation. The essays are offered as a fitting tribute to I. Howard Marshall--one of the most outstanding evangelical New Testament scholars of his generation. Endorsements: "In addressing so many different aspects of the New Testament in light of the church's mission to spread the gospel, this collection of essays instantiates, and resolves, the problem of unity and diversity that stands at the heart of NT theology." Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Blanchard Professor of Theology, Wheaton College Graduate School, Illinois "This book, written by a galaxy of NT scholars, sets before us not a fast food meal but a scintillating smorgasbord of delights to savor in an unhurried fashion." Derek Tidball, Vice-President of the Evangelical Alliance UK and Visiting Scholar at Spurgeon's College, London "The quality of the essays in this volume make it a worthy tribute to one of the finest exegetical scholars of our time. The essays cover a fascinating range of issues related to mission in the New Testament, approaching them with both scholarly rigor and a concern for their relevance to the mission of the church today. All readers who appreciate both will find much here to learn and to savor." Richard Bauckham, Professor Emeritus, University of St Andrews, Scotland; Senior Scholar at Ridley Hall, Cambridge "In addressing so many different aspects of the New Testament in light of the church's mission to spread the gospel, this collection of essays by I. Howard Marshall's friends, colleagues, and former students instantiates, and resolves, the problem of unity and diversity that stands at the heart of NT theology. It is therefore a most fitting tribute, both to the man and his work." Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Blanchard Professor of Theology, Wheaton College Graduate School, Illinois "I can't think of a more fitting tribute to Howard Marshall--the man and the scholar--than this book. It's spot on in picking up his twin commitments to New Testament scholarship and mission. It is written by a galaxy of NT scholars, many of who are his former research students, which is testimony enough to his achievements. The book sets before us not a fast food meal but a scintillating smorgasbord of delights to savor in an unhurried fashion. Then we must remember, as the one the book honors would want, that the energy derived from the food we enjoy must be turned into active mission." Derek Tidball, Former Principal of London School of Theology; currently Vice-President of the Evangelical Alliance UK and Visiting Scholar at Spurgeon's College, London "The quality of the essays in this volume make it a worthy tribute to one of the finest exegetical scholars of our time. The essays cover a fascinating range of issues related to mission in the New Testament, approaching them with both scholarly rigour and a concern for their relevance to the mission of the church today. All readers who appreciate both will find much here to learn and to savor." Richard Bauckham, Professor Emeritus, University of St Andrews, Scotland; Senior Scholar at Ridley Hall, Cambridge Editor Biography: Jon C. Laansma is Associate Professor of Ancient Languages and New Testament, Wheaton College and Graduate School. Grant R. Osborne is Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Ray F.
