Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent intro to the NT  Feb 22, 2007
If you're a pastor, seminary student, or a layperson who needs a good, informative, and easy to read introduction to the New Testament then this book will be perfect for you. Many NT introductions/surveys that are out there are either 1) too technical and academic, or 2) liberal/modernist. This introduction is solidly evangelical, easy to understand, and academic enough for even the novice biblical scholar.

The strength of the book is that it does not survey each of the books in the New Testament chapter by chapter but by topics of significance in each book. For instance, when the authors talk about the message of Galatians they do not discuss what each of the 6 chapters discusses but about what Paul says about the nature of the gospel, law and grace, etc. (though Acts is an exception). Pretty much everything is covered regarding each book (authorship, date, place of writing, etc.).

Another feature of the book that will attract more novice pastors and students of the Bible is the colourful pictures that are abundantly printed in the book. Though some may find this comical, I think it added to the charm of this book. Pictures, graphs, maps, etc. help readers understand the background of each of the NT books better.

Finally, one other thing I really liked about this book is that the authors discuss side-issues related to the NT. The chapters on NT criticism (chap. 10), the historical Jesus Christ controversies (chaps. 8 and 12), and the teachings of Paul the Apostle (chap. 17) are well written, informative, and orthodox. I would say that these chapters alone are worth about half of the price of the book alone. Sure, the authors could have written more deeply on these chapters but the intended audience demanded that they do not go too deeply in these matters.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book for those who want a better understanding of the NT books. Though it is not that scholarly and deep, it is still good enough for what it intends and many students of the Bible will find rich information that will greatly help in their personal spiritual growth and ministry.
 
Good book  Feb 14, 2007
This book is easy to use, and has a lot of things to make it easier to read and comprehend the material. I haven't found a use for the CD though, its just kinda' neat. I highly recommend this book for anyone studying the history of the New Testament, and learning the facts surrounding it.
 
Excellent Study  Jan 22, 2007
This book provides an in-depth look into the Olt Testament. Cultural backdrop, political motives and historical figures create a great point of reference for the Bible and God's plan for humanity.
 
Old Testament Survey  Jan 18, 2007
Excellent text book for those that want to study the Bible and it's origins and how it relates to New Testament prophecy fullfilled.
