about this book

For those who have had an introduction to Sacred Scripture, Father Raymond E. Brown, S.S., the outstanding American biblical scholar, has organized this collection of fourteen of his essays on various aspects of the New Testament. Although there are some essays of a popular nature, most of them are studies in depth, written with a clarity remarkable because of the intricate scholarship demanded by the subject matter. After discussion of the motivation and orientation of modern Catholic biblical research and its ecumenical possibilities, Father Brown shows modern biblical technique at work. A specialist in the study of the Gospel of John, he treats the theology and background of the Johannine Gospel, especially the sacramental theme and the impact of the Dead Sea scrolls; and the relationship between John and the synoptic Gospels, important in any consideration of Johannine historicity. His profound spiritual insight is evident in his final essay, which shows how biblical scholarship works toward a deeper understanding of the Word of God and its implications for the modern Christian.

Father Ron Witherup, S.S., provides an introductory essay for our reissued edition of NEW TESTAMENT ESSAYS, describing the life and work of Ray Brown, his impact on biblical studies and the development of Roman Catholic exegesis, and his powerful legacy.
