In your opinion, if you had to choose one introductory book for the study of the New Testament, which book would you choose? When I was in seminary (an evangelical one) we used D.A. Carson and Douglas Moo, An Introduction to the New Testament. Many people I know would say that Raymond E. Brown’s An Introduction to the New Testament remains the best. Others might suggest Bart D. Ehrman’s The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings. Tell me your preference (or favorite few if you have more than one).
