Library of New Testament Studies

(formerly Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement)

The Library of New Testament Studies (LNTS) is a premier book series that offers cutting-edge work for a readership of scholars, teachers in the field of New Testament studies, postgraduate students and advanced undergraduates.  All the many and diverse aspects of New Testament study are represented and promoted, including innovative work from historical perspectives, studies using social-scientific and literary theory, and developing theological, cultural and contextual approaches.  LNTS is published regularly by T & T Clark International, a world-class religious academic publishing program that is both interdisciplinary and international in scope, incorporating Sheffield Academic Press, T & T Clark and Trinity Press International.

The series was launched by Sheffield Academic Press in 1981 to complement its associated journal, the Journal for the Study of the New Testament. The series was renamed the Library of New Testament Studies in 2005.

Several other series also form part of LNTS:

  • Early Christianity in Context (editor: John Barclay) examines the birth and development of early Christianity up to the end of the third century CE. The series places Christianity in its social, cultural, political and economic context.
  • European Seminar on Christian Origins (editor: Michael Labahn)
  • Library of Historical Jesus Studies (editor: Robert Webb)

The series editor is Mark Goodacre (Professor in the Religion Department at Duke University) and he will be happy to discuss book proposals with potential authors informally on Goodacre@duke.edu.
