Generations of students have known G.B. Caird as a penetrating and lucid guide to the many questions and problems posed by modern biblical study. His brillant commentaries on St Luke, the Book of Revelation, and St Paul's Prison Epistles, as well as his other studies on theology and theBible, have won for him a place among the twentieth century's foremost biblical scholars. This new and masterly presentation of New Testament theology, completed and edited since the author's death by Professor L.D. Hurst, takes the unique step of setting up an imaginary debate amongst the various authors of the New Testament themselves. As central concepts (predestination, sin,atonement, the church, sacrament, ethics, eschatology, and christology) are `discussed' between such figures as Luke, Paul, John, and the author of Hebrews, the work moves to its climax with a presentation of the theology of Jesus himself. The result provides a particularly fresh and illuminatingpicture of the ideas at the heart of Christianity, deserving a place on the shelf of every serious pastor, theologian, and student of the Bible.

Editorial Reviews

`A welcome addition to studies in biblical theology ... This volume draws together the major strands of his thought into one comprehensive work ... He clearly demonstrates that while the New Testament texts were not written to be sung in unison, they can surely be sung in harmony (24). This isa book to be read and savored.'Pro Ecclesia
