Called by the Gospel is the title for a series of introductory theological textbooks written from a distinctly Lutheran perspective. In keeping with the predominant place of the gospel in Lutheran theology, this introductory volume on the New Testament carries the same title as the series, Called by the Gospel. Readers will find within its pages a high view of the Christian Scriptures, explanation of keys texts with careful attention to the historical and cultural contexts, particular focus on the presentation of Jesus by the various texts, and a conversational style that seeks to convey the message of the text for contemporary times. Although the book was written with university students in mind, any Christians who seek to deepen their grasp of the New Testament will find within its pages helpful and challenging insights. This book builds on material presented in the first volume of the series, Called to be God's People, and supplements its contents with maps, photos, suggested readings, discussion questions, and a glossary. Together these two volumes prepare the university student for an in-depth consideration of Christian doctrine in Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess. Michael P. Middendorf is Professor of Theology at Concordia University, Irvine, California. He is the author of several books and articles including The ""I"" in the Storm: A Study of Romans 7 and ""The Bud Has Flowered: Trinitarian Theology in the New Testament."" He also serves on the Commission on Theology and Church Relations of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Mark Schuler is Professor of Theology, Greek, and Archaeology at Concordia University, Saint Paul, Minnesota, and codirector of the Hippos/Sussita Excavations in Israel for whom he has coauthored five volumes of excavation reports published by the Zinman Institute of Archaeology at the University of Haifa.
