READING THE NEW TESTAMENT TODAY introduces the student to the contemporary study of the New Testament, with special attention to today's leading critical methods: historical, feminist, social scientific, narrative, and cross-cultural. These methods are used in each of the thirteen chapters that deal directly with the New Testament literature to guide the student through readings of the New Testament. Examples of each method, as practiced by leading interpreters, are given in every chapter for students to interact with as they build their understandings and skills. These methods are organized to allow professors to select which ones they wish to utilize with their classes. An accompanying Web site offers interactive pedagogy to develop student learning, and offers dozens of links to New Testament study sites to enrich student learning.

Dr. Robert E. Van Voorst, Professor of New Testament Studies at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan, and former professor of religion at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, has written frequently on religious studies in noted journals and reference works. In addition, he has authored numerous books, including six with Cengage Learning: RELG: WORLD, 2nd Edition; READINGS IN CHRISTIANITY, 3rd Edition; ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES, 8th Edition; ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES: EASTERN RELIGIONS; ANTHOLOGY OF WORLD SCRIPTURES: WESTERN RELIGIONS; and READING THE NEW TESTAMENT TODAY, now also in a Chinese version. Other books by Van Voorst include BUILDING YOUR NEW TESTAMENT GREEK VOCABULARY, 3rd Edition; THE ASCENTS OF JAMES, a recovery and commentary on a second-century Jewish-Christian document; and JESUS OUTSIDE THE NEW TESTAMENT, an examination of traditions about Jesus from ancient classical and Jewish documents, now also in Italian.
