9780073535821: The New Testament: A Student's Introduction

Designed for students beginning their first systematic study of the Christian Scriptures, The New Testament: A Student’s Introduction is reader-friendly and effectively organized to facilitate student learning. The text surveys the historical and cultural background of the early Christian era and offers cogent discussions of each of the New Testament’s twenty-seven books, from the Gospel biographies of Jesus to the mystic symbols of Revelation. In addition to presenting the Jewish and Greco-Roman context in which the canonical authors wrote, the text incorporates important scholarship that helps illuminate each document’s principal themes and religious significance. This well-balanced introduction, featuring numerous maps, charts and essays, enhances students’ understanding of the first-century Christian experience and distinctive worldview.
