Item description for New Testament Theology (Guthrie New Testament Reference ) by Donald Guthrie...

Guthrie emphasizes the rich diversity of New Testament theology while also demonstrating its essential unity. An extended introduction surveys the history, nature and method of N.T. theology.

Publishers Description
The culmination of a lifetime of study, this comprehensive New Testament theology brings out the rich variety of New Testament thought while demonstrating its inner unity. New Testament theology, Donald Guthrie maintains, centers on Jesus Christ--his person, work and mission--and is unified by repeated emphasis on the fulfillment of Old Testament promise, community, the Spirit and the future hope. And extended introduction surveys the history, nature and method of New Testament theology and sets forth the distinctives of Guthrie's synthetic approach. Guthrie then examines New Testament thought under the thematic headings God, man and his world, Christology, the mission of Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Christian life, the church, the future, the New Testament approach to ethics, and Scripture. Within each chapter he explores the synoptic Gospels, the Johannine literature, Acts, Paul, Hebrews, the remaining Epistles and Revelation. Marked by scholarly rigor and thoroughness, this volume will serve as a standard reference and text, reflecting mature conservative scholarship at its best.

Reviews - What do customers think about New Testament Theology?

Excellent Companion to Guthrie's Introduction  Feb 17, 2005
Donald Guthrie's NEW TESTAMENT THEOLOGY is a solid presentation of NT theology from a very conservative perspective. Most NT theologies have separate sections on each NT author. Guthrie's book proceeds topically. This approach is justified by the Guthrie's view that the "revelation cannot be contradictory." The results are quite conservative (Guthrie opposes women in ministry for example) and there is a considerable effort to harmonize the divergent strains of NT thought contra writers such as Dunn.

This book is amazingly comprehensive. It is over 1000 pages and contains chapters on ethics (personal & social) and biblical inspiration. The discussion of Jesus' view of the Old Testament is several pages alone.

Like Guthrie's NEW TESTAMENT INTRODUCTION, this is not one of the first books you want to read if you starting out to study the NT. Leon Morris' book of the same name is a more manageable introduction of about a third the length.
Good, but missing something  Apr 14, 2001
Donald Guthrie's approach to NT Theology is different from most. He approaches it Thematically, as opposed to devloping themes by the authors.

This has pros and cons. The reader can see how NT thought develops and the way in which each author uses a particular theme more easily. On the flip side, this has a nasty tendency to "flatten" the distinctions between each of the human author's of the text.

As such, I would not say this should be a person's FIRST Biblical Theology. BUT, if one has a good NT Theology (Ladd, preferably), then this would be a very good SECOND choice for a Biblical Theology.

Worthy in every Theologian's Library  Apr 13, 2001
I would assert this is a must for the proficient student of theology's library.

Guthrie is renown as a foundational text for NT Theology. I find myself referring to it often as it catalogues various themes and doctrines so well. One does not have to accept all of Guthrie's theology to find this useful.

Highly recommended.
