    • Abstract:
      Summary: 1 Chronicles speaks of men "of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do." In our rapidly changing, postmodern culture, we desperately need men who understand the times and know what we ought to do. D. A. Carson is such a man. Renowned as a gifted speaker, writer, theologian, and pastor, Carson has written extensively and persuasively on a wide range of topics and has been a defender of the modern evangelical faith. In appreciation of Carson's life work, editors Andreas J. Köstenberger and Robert Yarbrough, themselves respected scholars, have assembled a team of contributors to produce this volume of essays on New Testament studies in modern times. The book is divided into three parts: New Testament studies and ancillary disciplines, special topics in New Testament studies, and New Testament studies around the world. Pastors, professors, and students will benefit not only from the example of a man who understands the times, but also from the high quality of scholarship and wide variety of topics covered in this volume.
