"How to Read the New Testament" is not an introduction to linguistics and New Testament interpretation. As the subtitle indicates, it is more broadly conceived: an introduction to linguistic and historical critical methodologies. Its emphasis on linguistics, particularly in part 3 ("Reading Synchronically"), however, cannot be understated, and it will provide a fresh approach to the text for many New Testament interpreters. Traditional methods of historical criticism are discussed in parts 4 ("Reading Diachronically") and 5 ("Reading Historically"). But Egger is not as interested in the methods themselves as he is in how their application informs a reading of the New Testament texts. Part 6, "Reading Hermeneutically," explores how the New Testament can continue to be relevant in the life of the church. This important volume integrates the fruit of historical criticism with the rewards of linguistic analysis. Egger s book does a magnificent job in introducing new approaches to the New Testament, as well as the classic approaches, and showing how they can and must be integrated for optimal understanding of the text. It should be the first choice of a textbook for introductory courses in New Testament.

One unfortunate consequence of the bitter fundamentalist-modernist controversy which raged in the early twenties has been the strongly negative attitude toward Biblical criticism assumed by some of the successors to the fundamentalists of the 1920s. Such people, according to the author, insist that the critical method is basically hostile to the evangelical faith, and they have continued to oppose any use of it. Others, however, claiming the same heritage, believe that the orthodox interpretation of the Gospel can be defended positively and constructively only with the aid of a sound critical method and the results of critical scholarship. The author believes that an evangelical Biblical criticism is not only possible but necessary. The central thesis of his book is that "the Bible is the Word of God given in the words of men in history", and as such its historical origins must be reconstructed as far as possible. In this way a richer understanding of the Scriptures can be achieved.

There is no agreement among scholars about how to read Ecclesiastes. Some read it as deeply pessimistic while others read it as an affirmation of Joy. Ecclesiastes is thus a fertile site for an analysis of the hermeneutical issues impacting on biblical exegesis. This volume explores the interface of hermeneutics and biblical exegesis while keeping its focus on the reading of Ecclesiastes.
