The New Testament is introduced without its message being relegated to a position of secondary importance. The groundwork of history and geography,biography and interpretation, is covered thoroughly, and yet in a manner uncluttered by references. Those beginning to study the New Testament will find this an invaluable guide, whil mature students will discover it to be stimulating and penetrating to an unusual degree. This introduction to the New Testament contains two sets of related material written by Dr. J. Gresham Machen, the first a course of studies covering the New Testament in the Student's Text Book, and the second an augmented parallel course in the Teacher's Manual. Machen's two distinct courses are here blended together into a harmonious whole. Subjects covered are the historical background of Christianity, the early history of Christianity, Christianity established among the Gentiles, the principles and practice of the gospel, the presentaion and defence of Christianity, the Apostolic Church and the Church of today.
A most helpful book, which succeeds in bridging the gap of twenty centuries to bring the history of the New Testament alive today in a fascinating way.
