“This lively book of essays represents a fitting tribute to the life ofDon Carson, one of the liveliest and most learned biblical scholars of ourtime. It will only suit its honoree, however, if it leads its variedreaders to the Scriptures he has studied for so long, increasing devotionand fidelity to the gospel they proclaim. I pray that God will make thisso for Jesus sake.”See All

“D. A. Carson is the Renaissance man of North American evangelicalism. Heis a biblical scholar of the highest caliber, a preacher and evangelist ofrenown, and a theologian of unswerving commitment to the gospel. Histeaching ministry has spanned the globe; in fact, I've heard his sermon onMatthew 27 on three different continents and found it equally stirringeach time. This book is a snapshot of issues in the international NewTestament scene as it stands today. This erudite collection of essays isrightly dedicated to one who has committed his life to serving the globalchurch.”See All

This solid volume thusoffers not only a worthy tribute to its honoree but also valuableassessments of the state of New Testament scholarship worldwide.”See All

This collection of essays, written in honor of scholar D. A. Carson, examines the state of New Testament studies in contemporary times.
1 Chronicles speaks of men “of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do.” In our rapidly changing, postmodern culture, we desperately need men who understand the times and know what we ought to do. D. A. Carson is such a man. Renowned as a gifted speaker, writer, theologian, and pastor, Carson has written extensively and persuasively on a wide range of topics and has been a defender of the modern evangelical faith.
In appreciation of Carson's life work, editors Andreas J. Köstenberger and Robert Yarbrough, themselves respected scholars, have assembled a team of contributors, including Stanley Porter, Grant Osborne, Mark Dever, John Woodbridge, Douglas Moo, Peter O'Brien, Eckhard Schnabel, Craig Blomberg, and David Pao, together to produce this volume of essays on New Testament studies in modern times. The book is divided into three parts:
- New Testament Studies and Ancillary Disciplines
- Special Topics in New Testament Studies
- New Testament Studies Around the World
Published April 2011
