An Excellent Book
on June 25, 2015
Mark Allan Powell has produced an excellent book which anyone can understand and enjoy. He starts the book with a marvellous Preface in which he speaks to the reader directly - it is as though he is having a conversation with you. He uses simple language to get his message across which provides the book with much clarity.The maps, historical photographs and examples from the history of Christian art as well as the companion website which offers additional material for study, greatly enhances this book.
As a historian and a student of Theology, another important feature of this book is the author's ability to use simple language to explain the dynamic world of the New Testament which is critical to understanding the context in which the New Testament was written. Introduction to the New Testament is truly a beautifully written book and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in understanding the New Testament.
