Product Description

The disconnect of our cultural, historical, and intellectual setting to the world of the New Testament can make studying the New Testament a difficult and confusing process for the average person. This full-color survey is filled with color photos, charts, and maps, and is designed to help ordinary people enrich their understanding of New Testament people and events. This book is evangelical, and answers such important topics such as authorship and audience, Gnosticism, slavery, historical reliability and explains the context and content of the New Testament for anyone seeking a better understanding of the NT.

Norman L. Geisler is cofounder and longtime dean of Southern Evangelical Seminary and Bible College, Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the author of more than sixty books, including A Popular Survey of the Old Testament.

Publisher's Description

Understanding the New Testament is a daunting but exciting task. Our world is so different from that of the first century. Yet it is important to understand the context and content of the New Testament if we are to be faithful followers. Now in paper, this survey addresses the who, what, where, when, why, and how questions that readers of the Bible may have, such as: How can we tell if what is written in the New Testament is true history or just mythology? When were these books written and why? and What can today's believers get out of letters addressed to people who lived two millennia ago? Written in an easy, informal style, this survey is accessible and enjoyable to anyone who wants to better understand the New Testament.

Publisher's Weekly

Of the making of New Testament studies there is no end, so readers may rightly wonder why yet another manual is needed. Does this volume offer insights not easily available elsewhere? Geisler, dean of Southern Evangelical Seminary and Bible College, and author of more than 70 books dealing with the Bible and Christianity, gathers decades of findings of New Testament scholars into a truly accessible and readable overview, aimed at readers at all levels. Beginning with a fine explanation of the various critical methodologies used in analyzing the scriptural record, he then treats each book in the New Testament, addressing questions about authorship, the date of writing and the book's intended audience, and a clear explanation of the content of each book. Several appendixes bring Geisler's study to a close, including a list of keywords in the New Testament and a harmonization of miracles in the various gospels. Numerous charts and full-color photos enhance the presentation, making the book an excellent choice for course adoption. Geisler thinks even beginning students can appreciate and understand the canon and demonstrates beautifully the simplicity and consistency of these writings. This is a book worth owning. (Dec.)

    It is a great work from a faithful man of faith.

    I did expect it to be a little bit more in depth than it is. But at the same time, like the fact that it sticks to the Bible and doesn't venture off too much into the secular parallels like some of the other Bible survey books.

    Overall, would recommend to any everyday Bible student.

    Love this book, it is an excellent resource for teachers, study questions at the end of each chapter to ensure that the student(or you) understand the key points of the chapter.

    I find this 2-set volume to be very brief but concise for the average lay person who desires a quick, right to the point, reference book on both, the Old and New Testament of the Bible. However, for the more indepth study of the Bible, for the more advanced student, these 2 volumes are not intended to reach into the more thorough depths of Bible study. I would recommend this set to the "everyday" type of Christian as a handy study, reference, resource.

    Great overview of the NT! I would say it is a fit for a college freshman course or a course for those at a church that are very serious.
