At a Glance
By: F.F. Bruce
"Our object," says F.F. Bruce, "is to find out what historical research reveals about the origin of the New Testament canon." Concise chapters explore dates and origin of NT books, the formation of the NT canon, and examines the Gospels (including a chapter on miracles), the importance of Paul, of Luke, and evidence supporting the reliability of the New Testament from archaeology, early Jewish writings, and early Gentile writings. Professor Bruce concludes that "there is no body of ancient literature in the world which enjoys such a wealth of good textual attestation as the New Testament.” Bruce writes as a historian, not as a theologian, and this book addresses the reliability of the New Testament, not its authority. This is the sixth (and latest) edition with an introduction by N.T. Wright. This ebook also contains an article, “Are the New Testament Documents Still Reliable? that Professor Bruce wrote 35 years after the first publication of the book.
