First: The Bible and World Religions (a 9-page PDF).
You’ll find three articles in this set written by three excellent, careful, evangelical scholars:
- Marvin Wilson (Harold J. Ockenga Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies at Gordon College) writes on Judaism.
- Harold Netland (Professor of Philosophy of Religion and Intercultural Studies and the Naomi A. Fausch chair of missions at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) writes on World Religions.
- Timothy Tennent (Professor of World Missions and Indian Studies, Director of Missions Programs at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) writes on Islam (going into more details than Netland’s treatment).
The lead-off essay in the ESV Study Bible is by Vern Poythress, entitled Overview of the Bible: A Survey of the History of Salvation – go check it out.
The introduction to Ephesians, along with the notes for the first chapter, have been placed online by Crossway. S. M. Baugh, NT Professor at Westminster Seminary California, is the author of these notes on Ephesians, and Andy Naselli provides an interview with him.
