Item description for From Hebrews to Revelation by Lewis Donelson...
Overview In this clearly written volume about the latter half of the New Testament, Donelson begins by asking, "If we read this text in this way, what voices do we hear?" Such a reading strategy requires "historical imagination" because the documents are seperated from us by time, space, language, and culture. It also requires making these texts conversation partners in our understanding about God and ourselves. Designed as an introduction, From Hebrews to Revelation offers insights that will benefit both students and scholars.
