Several noteworthy introductions to the New Testament have appeared recently, each one aiming at introducing the reader to the books of the New Testament on different levels. Although the different introductions deal with the same basic material, each one has its own unique characteristics. This is also true of Holladay’s critical introduction. Scanning the book for the first time left the impression that much thought has gone into both the content and the presentation of the material. The first unique feature that immediately catches the eye is the expanded CD version that comes with the book. Holladay distinguishes between the Standard Version (the printed text) and the Expanded CD Version. These should be used in tandem. Where there is expanded material available on the CD, it is clearly indicated in bold letters in the Standard Version. The CD not only contains the full text but adds the additional material on the pages indicated in the Standard Version. More technical material, such as primary references, more detailed discussions and debates, additional diagrams and illustrations, are available on the CD. Detailed annotations and footnotes on the CD also enrich the available material. In his own words, Holladay remarks that adding a CD “represents the changing face of academic publishing” and represents a “bold editorial move by Abingdon” (5). [Full Review]
