Conversations with the New Testament presents an innovative approach to introducing the study of the New Testament. It has a user-friendly narrative style, telling the story of various members of a Church Learning Group as they learn about the content of the material, the critical issues it raises for scholars, and the current state of those questions for today's students.
Unlike other introductions, Conversations takes as its starting point the concept of good news, and asks: how do we experience good news in the here and now? Those answers then become part a conversation with the New Testament text. Within that conversation all that might be expected of a New Testament introduction is covered, but hopefully in a way that will encourage further reflection and engagement.
The Venerable Dr John Holdsworth is a practitioner theologian, currently working as Executive Archdeacon of the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf.
His research interests centre on the communication of the Bible in contemporary culture, in which field he has published a number of books and study guides.
John Holdsworth offers a broad introduction to the study of the New Testament. He adeptly shows the relevance of critical scholarship by presenting the whole book as a conversation between the leader and participants in a church learning group, asking about the relevance of the Bible to their lives... The numerous practical essays well repay the effort required to engage with them, and he offers concise suggestions for further reading on each topic. -- Erin Clark, Orion Edgar * Church Times *
I didn't really want to spend even more money on books at the moment but I'm glad I got this one. It gives a whole new way of looking at bible study, and we're already talking about how we can implement something of the same idea at my own church where it's hard to get people to a study group - so we're taking the study to them instead.
