‘An exciting new series that will provide orientation and essential information for students at the beginning of a course, in an attractive and readable format. From here the student will be well placed to move on to classic texts and larger handbooks.’

- John Barton, Professor of the Interpretation of Holy Scripture, University of Oxford

Thiselton’s genius lies in his extraordinary capacity to help us see familiar issues afresh and deepen our sense of truth. Thiselton’s method. . . is to guide the student or reader, giving him or her new vistas, insights and nourishment for the intellectual journey ahead.
