The disconnect of our cultural, historical, and intellectual setting to the world of the New Testament can make studying the New Testament a difficult and confusing process for the average person. This full-color survey is filled with color photos, charts, and maps, and is designed to help ordinary people enrich their understanding of Old Testament people and events. This book is evangelical, and answers such important topics such as authorship and audience, Gnosticism, slavery, historical reliability and explains the context and content of the New Testament for anyone seeking a better understanding of the NT.
Norman L. Geisler is cofounder and longtime dean of Southern Evangelical Seminary and Bible College, Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the author of more than sixty books, including A Popular Survey of the Old Testament.
