In De-Introducing the New Testament, the authors argue for a renewed commitment to the defamiliarizing power of New Testament studies and a reclaiming of the discipline as one that exemplifies the best practices of the humanities. -A new approach that asks us to 'defamiliarize' what we think we know about the New Testament, articulating themes and questions about its study that encourage further reflection and engagement -Looks behind the traditional ways in which the NT is "introduced" to critically engage the conceptual framework of the field as a whole -Provides a critical intervention into several methodological impasses in contemporary NT scholarship -Offers an appraisal of the relationship between economics and culture in the production of NT scholarship -Written in a style that is clear and concise, ideal for student readership
