This is a new edition of the late Bishop Neill's widely acclaimed book, revised, expanded, and brought up to date by his former colleague the Revd Tom Wright. This masterly survey now describes the historical development of New Testament criticism from 1861 (the year Lightfoot became HulseanProfessor of Divinity at Cambridge) to the present day, the contrasting personalities of scholars, and the permanent contributions made by various schools. The study concludes with a new chapter by Tom Wright, covering New Testament scholarship of the last twenty five years.
Stephen Neill is at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. Tom Wright is at Worcester College, Oxford.
