Navigating Tough Texts

A guide for reading and understanding difficult New Testament verses.

While the core message of the New Testament is clear, we often encounter puzzling, alarming, or confusing sections when we get into the details. In this second volume of Navigating Tough Texts, Murray J. Harris concisely considers more than eighty tricky passages in the New Testament. He shows how these texts offer insights with implications for theology, apologetics, mission, and the Christian life.

Navigating Tough Texts, Volume 2 is a sure guide for pastors, students, and curious Christians who want to be better readers of the tough passages in the Bible.

Praise for Navigating Tough Texts, Volume 2

Murray Harris is a master guide, after a long lifetime of study, to some of Scripture’s most puzzling problems. Even on the rare occasions when one disagrees with him, one ought to admit that he might be right!

—Craig L. Blomberg, distinguished professor emeritus of New Testament, Denver Seminary

With precision, acumen, and sound judgment, Murray J. Harris brings a lifetime of study and devotion to bear on the meaning of notoriously gnarly verses. Students, pastors, and all other serious Bible readers will benefit from his limpid explanations and careful verdicts. This book not only furnishes helpful solutions to interpretive conundrums—it also models sound and creative strategies for dealing with any puzzling biblical text.

—Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, MO

When lost at sea, there’s nothing like having a seasoned sailor as your companion. For Bible readers stymied by passages that have posed and continue to pose either doctrinal or ethical difficulties, Murray Harris provides a steady helping hand at the exegetical helm. The very selection of which problem passages to treat in this second collection reflects his wise judgment, as does the manner in which he reads with Trinitarian faith, making this book a helpful guide that will help beginning and even more advanced readers from suffering interpretive shipwreck.

—Kevin J. Vanhoozer, research professor of systematic theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

This second volume of Navigating Tough Texts opens the treasures that lie buried in the intricacies of hard-to-understand texts of the New Testament. Dr. Harris’s lifetime of godly wisdom and extraordinary exegetical skills should earn him the title, ‘St. Murray, the Exegete!’

—Bradley Nassif, professor of Biblical Studies, Antiochian House of Studies, La Verne, CA
