This revised edition of Gundrys survey of the New Testament goes beyond providing background information and technical introductory material and leads students to read the New Testament itself. Whenever possible general questions of introduction and background are tied to assigned readings covering the entire New Testament. In addition, comments on these readings help students with interpretation and follow the flow of thought from one passage to another.
Features include: New design with four-color format and more photos and improved maps Chapters begin with list, of study goals and end with summary, overview and of people, places, terms to remember, and review questions Outlines, section headings, subheadings, and bolded items make it easy to follow structure of discussion Phonetic pronunciations for unfamiliar names and terms Breakouts with illustrative quotes from ancient, nonbiblical literature Discussion questions on the contemporary relevance of the New Testament Updated bibliographies Conservative evangelical theological perspective also notes other positions and literature

It is even great for the serious student of the Bible that loves learning about the deeper levels of the Bible.
I don't always agree with opinions of author. Some new, interesting points.Published 2 months ago by Badger Fan
Very easy to understand and this is the book we are using for class. Even if you are not taking a N.T. Survey Class, buy this to understand the Bible more.Published 2 months ago by Agent English
