Reviews of the English Version

Pre-publication Reviews:
“Schröter does what very few New Testament scholars—whether English- or German-speaking—manage: to ground his historical analysis explicitly in a nuanced and sophisticated theoretical discussion of what it means to do history. Schröter’s book serves as a superb introduction to and analysis of German New Testament scholarship.”
Adele Reinhartz, Full Professor, Department of Classics and Religious Studies, University of Ottawa

“Jens Schröter’s collection of essays seeks to penetrate deeply below the surface of the New Testament and its history and historical figures, and to bring into a meaningful perspective the theology and history that gave rise to the faith of the earliest Christians. Many think a New Testament canon is a snapshot of what went on, but Schröter shows that the canon itself can only be understood in light of a long history of developments in different directions.”
Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
