The New Testamant: A Historical and Theological Introduction by Donald A Hagner and published by Baker.

It is not uncommon these days for New Testament introductions to ignore faith as a central role in reading, interpreting, and learning about the New Testament. Distinguished New Testament scholar Donald Hagner rejects such a notion and believes faith plays a central role-and indeed a primary instigator--for reading the New Testament properly.

But this does not mean that Hagner avoids the hardest questions. On the contrary, it means paying all the more attention. First, Hagner addresses interpretive approaches advocating for the legitimacy of the historical-critical approach in the context of faith, while rejecting the notion so common in "literary criticism" that history is unknowable and that we must find "our place in the story" or that the text only means what we take it to mean. Hagner's primary aim is to identify the status of questions in NT scholarship, and though he often provides his own answers he clearly acknowledges what is in dispute and what can and cannot be answered at this time.
