Product Description

The Essence of the New Testament: A Survey provides a comprehensive foray into the canonical books of the New Testament and the critical issues associated with them. Discussion on each biblical book covers authorship, occasion and date, major themes, historical context, genre, structure, message, and word studies--all from a traditional perspective. Further reading suggestions along with study questions are included at the end of each chapter. Multiple introductory chapters are also included in the book and give succinct introductions to historical, textual, and methodological concerns regarding the New Testament.

Uniquely illustrated, with full-color charts, maps, images, graphs constantly pull back the attention of readers, and the thick glossy paper coupled sturdy hardcovers ensure durability for long school years and a long life as a reference tool.

From Matthew to Revelation, and based on decades of scholarly research and classroom teaching, a team of elite biblical scholars from Liberty University provide a practical, readable, and insightful introduction to the New Testament. Thus this book is a well-tested and proven New Testament overview written at the collegiate level, yet appropriate for pastors, scholars, and laymen alike. It represents the finest evangelical scholarship and shares a passion for generating spiritual and practical insight into the biblical text.

Feature Overview:
  • More than 150 full-color photographs, maps, illustrations, and charts
  • Introductions for each NT book
  • Introductory chapters on reception of the NT, interpretive principles, intertestamental period, and the synoptic problem
  • Sidebars focusing on significant topics and Greek word studies for English readers
  • Study questions and recommended additional reading
