Ancient Christian traditions framed in conversation with their original settings and with a range of religious voices across time and place.
Does the New Testament relate to a wider landscape of sacred traditions? Might it be just one voice among many religious and philosophical options? New Testament Conversations combines standard historical and literary scholarship on New Testament writings with selected excerpts from non-Christian traditions, presenting theological questions as mutually illuminating, rather than oppositional. Through her writings in this textbook, Suzanne Watts Henderson uniquely highlights the communal context and implications of New Testament passages across time and place. An important resource for both seasoned pastors and theological students.
