The Case Studies in this volume were designed for use by adult learners. Each Case Study was crafted to bulid upon and enlarge what you already know and experience about the Church. At the same time, there will be surprises: you will be exploring dimensions of the Church which you have never closely examined before. Progressively, you will become fascinated with and rooted in the past - gaining a new freedom, a new discernment, and a new responsibility to live in the present. From time to time, you will even find yourself struggling to sort out how the origins and early history of Christianity square with what is going on in your church today. What kind of Christian in what kind of church, after all, does God intend us to be?
Exploring Scriptural Sources is an innovative, ecumenical textbook enabling students to explore key aspects of the early Christianity using primary texts.

This textbook is a natural choice for introductory New Testament courses.
