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.
Very organized resource book and learning tool. Reminds me of the textbooks when I was in school. I've used it many times for reference in email and chat room discussions with both Christians and people of other faiths. Wealth of information on eatch book of the New Testament, and it's easy to find anything your looking for real quick if your trying to remember something or point something out to someone else. Frankly this book should be in every church, and would be very useful in youth ministery work.
Geisler's survey of the New Testament is a treasure - packed with useful information and guidance for both the casual reader and the teacher. This book makes the necessary connections to Jesus everywhere. There is no shortage of helpful background to the various divisions of the New Testament. Maps, tables and charts bring the concerts home for the reader. "Survey" covers much more than the usual introductory data and for this reason I highly recommend this book.
