From the Back Cover

Charts provide a synthesis and visual overview of information that helps in teaching, learning, and review. Facts, relationships, parallels, and contrast are grasped easily and quickly. The 75 charts in Chronological and Background Charts of the New Testament are divided into four broad categories: General material, backgrounds to the New Testament, the Gospels, and the apostolic age. The charts cover a wide range of topics, from basic matters such as chronological list of the books of the New Testament to less familiar subjects such as "The Roman Military System" and "Early Patristic Quotations of the New Testament."

This is my first review for Zondervan. I must say that they hit a home run with this book. I received it today in the post. I do not normally review a book this quickly, but was curious about this book.

I sat down for about an hour poring over the book. The introduction stated that there is an abundance of information available about the New Testament. I must say that they packed much of it into this one.

I was amazed at all of the charts that were in the book.

I shall list some of them here:

Political and Religious Leaders

First Century Emporors, Prefects, Rulers in Judea, and in Israel

Roman Emporors in NT Times

The Ptolemies

The Seleucids

The Maccabees

The High Priests

and more

General Material

The Books of the NT (arranged according to the time of writing as well as charts on the doctrinal and literary classification of various books).

Weights and Measures

NT quotations of OT passages

The Gospels

Literary relationship of the Synoptics

A comparative chart of the four gospels

The five gospels of the Jesus Seminar

The Apostolic Age

Information about Acts

Paul's Journeys

Chronological charts of the Apostolic age

The Pauline epistles

Hebrews

Revelation

Various perspectives on Revelation

The list of charts goes on and on, it seems.

The charts deal with everything from the secular history of the times to the history of the NT books.

I can see how this work would be very useful to any careful student of the NT. It is a good resource. It is also easy to read. The font is easy on the eyes, and the layout is not overly cluttered.

I highly recommend it.

This book of charts is part of a series covering the Old Testament, the New Testament, Church History, Christian Doctrine, Philosophy, etc.
Of the several that I have, I would rate this as one of the better titles. Dr. House, while obviously an evangelical, bordering on being a fundamentalist, is sound and even-handed when dealing with various differences in timetables, chronologies, opinions, etc. about New Testament history and doctrine.
There is a little big of Protestant "digging" against Catholic understandings of New Testament doctrines etc., but nothing too objectionable.
This would be a good book for the "informed layman" or for a church library. In fact, it's a good introduction to the New Testament for adult Christian education.
But it is not without its flaws, and that needs to be realized in advance by clergy of differing backgrounds.

Okey, I have to repeat what I said about the Old Testament version and this one. These are great study tools! I purchased these back in college. Loved them then and even now! Definitely a must for any library. Excellent format, charts, clear explainations, etc. If you don't get it for yourself, get it for your kids. They definitely need visual aids to get anything anyways! The others in this series are great too.

It all depends on what you are looking for. I was disappointed that House takes a very traditional view on authorship and dating of NT books, asserting that the four gospels were written by the men for whom they are named, and that all the traditionally Pauline epistles were written by Paul. That being said, he does have charts near the end of the book that lay out arguments, in objective fashion, pro and con for these traditional authors. It's hard for me to imagine finding a personal use for most of his charts. Still, their creation does represent a significant achievement, and they most certainly would be useful to some readers.

I have looked for many of these charts, but never could find them all in one place. Also, he created many new ones that are very useful for me, and for the class I teach.

This book is a great teaching resource that is filled with various charts and graphs that help readers and students easily learn the New Testament. This work was most helpful when I was studying and researching the synoptic problem. It is field with about four or five different graphs that illustrate the various views of the synoptic problem, as well as the content of each of the synoptic Gospels.

I am working on developing curriculum for a New Testament survey class, and I wouldn't dare develop such curriculum without utilizing this text as a reference work for it. For the most part, the author uses a very conservative dating system, but also demonstrates some of the more liberal dating methodologies that are prevalent in the scholarly world at present.

I highly recommend this, and think that it should be a part of every New Testament student's library.

Blessings in Christ!

THERE'S NO CD! I'm debating whether to keep it or return it.
I've seen, and have, other chart books by Zondervan which have the CD with all the charts in it on PowerPoint. It makes things so much easier when teaching a class. Second, this book is primarily tables of information which would probably be better in paragraph form anyway. There are several charts and tables which are useful but the value for classroom usage is excessively limited. Finally, there are no maps. When discussing the background of the New Testament one of the critical factors is understanding where everything is located. I expected more from Zondervan, particularly since this is the new edition that was just released.
