Reviews - What do customers think about Understanding The New Testament (5th Edition)?

Poor Value  Apr 18, 2006
I bought this and Brown's Intro to NT. The Brown book, at 1/3 the price is superior in the quality of the book itself, and in my opinion, in the writing as well. That said, Kee's book is a good intro to the NT - just fantastically overpriced for what you get.
 
Great book, criminally priced  Aug 31, 2005
This book is a great introduction to the New Testament. It is great for understanding both the New Testament and the work of Biblical scholars. However, the book is astronomically over-priced. Apart from the comments of another reviewer, I would think the price is a misprint. The book should only cost twenty bucks or so. After all, the first edition is almost a half a century old and the latest edition is already over ten years old.
 
Exhorbitant price for a "Cheap" book  May 25, 2004
I ordered this book based on recommendations as to its content. I choked because of the price but I prefer new to second-hand and so I ordered the book. It is a text book and as such is so overpriced as to be ludicrous. When I received the text, not only were the front and back cover warped due to the cheap CARDBOARD covers but the paper was also of an inferior quality for a book of this price range. I estmated its worth at $15.00 not $100.00. Students have been financially violated for texts over the the last decade-maybe more. I refused to keep the book and was very well treated at Borders where they acknowledged the inferior text and the exhorbitant price.

I subsequently ordered the same book ,USED, in an older edition and the quality of the used book is far superior to the new, exceedingly inferior edition. Travesties exist even in the publication of texts primarily published for seminarians and religious studies students. This should not be. Captive audiences in the ranks of college students should not be financial fair game for the textbook publishers and colleges that sell them, especially when the texts are of inferior quality. Usurous prices are not just theft under the guise of academic costs-- they are immoral.

When I compare this text at $100.00 and some of the Cambridge Bibles or the In Touch Ministries Calf skin bible for $100.00 I have to laugh. At least now I do not cringe when a beautiful bible costs $100.00. With these exquisite books on gets one's money's worth. Enough. Caveat emptor on the 5th Edition by Kee and team.
