Writing from a conservative evangelical position, the author is careful to incorporate the findings of the latest Biblical scholarship while refraining from polemic.

Also included is a brief section on the language of the original, and a more extended discussion of Luke as a theologian. As an appendix, the author provides a table of parallel passages in the other Synoptics, enabling the reader to see at a glance what material is peculiar to Luke

"Recognizing the central importance of the Fourth Gospel in any series on the New Testament, Morris devoted more than ten years to preparing this volume. Written with considerable acumen and a thorough knowledge of the previous scholarly work on the Johannine text, The Gospel according to John is one of the largest and most comprehensive evangelical commentaries on this important Gospel. This revised edition includes significant modifications and additions. While maintaining substantially the same stance as in his original work, Morris here references important secondary sources and studies that have more recently"--Jacket
Testaments of love : a study of love in the Bible by Leon Morris( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers a thorough and instructive analysis of love in the Bible -- a topic that the author believes has been neglected and misinterpreted by most Biblical scholars. He is particularly concerned with eliminating the cultural and personal biases he finds in many interpretations of love in the Bible. Striving for a truly Biblical interpretation, he scrupulously examines the various Hebrew and Greek forms of the word in both the Old and New Testaments, concluding that love is the basis of God's dealing with men and that Christians ought to demonstrate more authentic Biblical love within and without the Christian community
An introduction to the New Testament by D. A Carson( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary focus of An Introduction to the New Testament is on what used to be called "special introduction"--That is, on historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and so forth. Several recent books devote more than this one does to literary form, rhetorical criticism, and historical parallels. The authors do not minimize the importance of such topics, and they have introduced them where they directly bear on the subject at hand. But they feel that these topics are better given extended treatment in courses on exegesis, especially the exegesis of particular books. There has been too much focus on these topics at the expense of traditional questions of "introduction," and this has tended to divorce the New Testament books from their historical settings. Although the emphasis in this book is on "special introduction," the authors have included a brief outline of each New Testament document, sometimes providing a rationale for the choices they have made. In each case they have provided a brief account of current studies on the book, and indicated something of the theological contribution that each New Testament document makes to the canon. Their ultimate concern is that new generations of students will gain a better grasp of the Word of God
New Testament theology by Leon Morris( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is not a history of New Testament times, nor an account of New Testament religion. Nor does it proceed from a view that the New Testament was written as theology. We must bear in mind that the writers of the New Testament books were not writing set theological pieces. They were concerned with the needs of the churches for which they wrote. Those churches already had the Old Testament, but these new writings became in time the most significant part of the Scriptures of the believing community. As such, they should be studied in their own right, and these questions should be asked: What do these writings mean' What is the theology they express or imply' What is of permanent validity in them' We read these writings across a barrier of many centuries and from a standpoint of a very different culture. We make every effort to allow for this, but we never succeed perfectly. In this book I am trying hard to find out what the New Testament authors meant, and this not as an academic exercise, but as the necessary prelude to our understanding of what their writings mean for us today. -- From the Introduction
