"New Testament theology is essentially missionary theology," writes I. Howard Marshall. This long-anticipated resource offers the insights born of a distinguished career of study, reflection, teaching and writing on the New Testament.
Marshall speaks clearly to a broad audience of students and scholars. Even on the most familiar ground, where informed readers might lower their expectations of learning something new, Marshall offers deft insights that sharpen understanding of the message of the New Testament.
Here is a New Testament theology that will not only guide students and delight teachers but also reward expositors with a lavish fund of insights for preaching.
NOTE: This resource is an e-Sword reference book accessible in the e-Sword Reference Library.

For decades, Howard Marshall has been a voice of thoroughness, fairness and moderation in biblical studies. Now, in a time when some are questioning the very need and legitimacy of New Testament theology, Marshall demonstrates why it must still be done and how it should be done, and then, quite simply, he does it. Biblical scholars and students on both sides of the Atlantic are once again indebted to a man who has written much and been a friend and a mentor to many. J. Ramsey Michaels, Professor Emeritus, Southwestern Missouri State University
This New Testament theology, the work of a distinguished, mature scholar, is most welcome! It is methodologically sound, attuned to the current issues in the field, lucid and genuinely comprehensive. Marshall's idea of the New Testament texts as missionary theology is intriguing and deserves careful reflection. This New Testament theology should be regarded as today's standard in the field. David M. Scholer, Professor of New Testament and Associate Dean for the Center for Advanced Theological Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary
This book is a stunning achievement by an outstanding scholar and gifted teacher. Here the fruit of wide reading and reflection over many years is set out most attractively. Students and scholars alike will appreciate the clarity of the discussion, the nuanced judgment on disputed issues and the guidance given to further reading. I particularly welcome the author's 'witness by witness' approach in his exposition of New Testament theology: the distinctive themes of the individual writings and the unifying threads both receive careful attention. Graham Stanton, Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge

Prof. Howard Marshall is a prestiged scholar in the N.T. theology. This book was not only a "textbook" for many theological students, but also a blessing to many Christians who wanted to dig deep into the Bible.

I found the New Testament Theology to be quite interesting. It is not an in-depth exposition but gives a very good overview of each of the books explaining the historical and cultural background to the theology. I believe it would be an excellent introdfuction to theological studies.

Seems to be written for those who already have a good grasp of the Bible. Some good information but you need some acquaintance with theological terms to be able to digest it all. Probably will turn out to be useful to me. Only had it a short time.

I was so excited to see Marshall's New Testament Theology available. I bought it within 5 minutes after seeing the ad. I've marked up my hardcopy version of this book with highlighter over the years and have about worn it out. It is one of the essentials in my library and one of the first places I go to. Now it goes with me everywhere my laptop goes! A lot better than having to lug a 3" thick book around. Thanks e-Sword!

I think it is a needed dissertation.
