Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Well Respected!December 7, 2016Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the Second Edition of a well-received volume by scholars David Wenham and Steve Walton. It's part of a 2 volume set with another volume by different scholars covering the rest of the New Testament. Actually, there are 4 other corresponding volumes that cover the Old Testament as well. Currently, this volume is available in either an attractive hardback volume or a more economical paperback edition.
It's aimed at first- or second year college students. Though it has features that will appeal more to those planning to become scholars than pastors or Bible students, it is still a fine volume for anyone.
The page layout is appealing and there are multiple things to look at depending on what you're studying at the moment. It is not set up as a chapter per NT book only as are so many such volumes. There's over 40 pages to set the stage of Jesus and the NT. Next there is a a good bit of critical discussion that is not as interesting to many readers. There's three chapters that discuss the direction of scholarly studies of Jesus. The balance of the book is on the four Gospels individually and Acts .
This book is my favorite of those I've used in this series and I recommend it.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
