`To present, in less than 400 pages (excluding the indexes), the whole sweep of New Testament thought is an excessively formidable task, calling not only for scholarship and learning but also for an artist's sense of proportion and economy of stroke. There are few who could have succeeded so well as Dr Richardson' (Journal of Theological Studies). `This book will stand for a long time as the indispensable handbook for the theological student who wants both to see the general picture of the apostolic Church's faith, and also to have a convenient and reliable digest of what the New Testament says about particular topics, such as, for example, Christology or salvation' (Church Times). `Alan Richardson is a theologian "whose praise in the gospel is (or deserves to be) in all the churches" on account both of the books which he has written himself and of those which he has edited. His latest work, An Introduction to the Theology of the New Testament, will probably be found more serviceable by students and teachers than anything he has previously produced' (Theology). Alan Richardson, who died in 1975, was for many years Professor of Christian Theology at Nottingham University and subsequently Dean of York.
