    Book details


Internationally respected scholar Francis Moloney offers a Catholic introduction to the New Testament that shows how to read it both faithfully and critically. The opening chapter and an epilogue directly address the theological requirements of, and historical challenges for, ecclesial reading. The remaining chapters give exemplary readings of the figure of Jesus and of the various divisions of the New Testament canon. Conceived as a resource for religious educators, deacons, and other ministers in the Catholic Church, this book will serve Catholics and others as an ideal supplement to a conventional New Testament introduction or as a companion to reading the New Testament itself.

"Reading the New Testament in the Church succinctly describes the first-century context, insightfully probes what we know about the 'historical Jesus, ' deftly explains the literary strategies of the Gospels, explores the passionate commitments and engaged rhetoric of the apostle Paul, and assists those wrestling with the complexities of somewhat strange texts such as Hebrews and Revelation. Readers seeking an introduction that combines scholarly integrity and theological responsibility will find Fr. Moloney's book a welcome aid to understanding the foundational documents of the church."--Harold Attridge, Yale Divinity School
