"Many Bible readers are familiar with individual trees while failing to see the forest. They are in great danger of misinterpreting the parts of the Bible they read because they do not see the entire structure of a Gospel like John or an epistle like Ephesians. Mark Dever fills a gaping need with his sermons on each of the individual books."
—Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Professor of Biblical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
"Mark Dever's approach is thematic without ignoring the literary and theological structure of the books and is thus a stimulus to doctrinal preaching."
—Graeme Goldsworthy, former lecturer in Old Testament, biblical theology, and hermeneutics, Moore Theological College
"Here is a vigorous, juicy, engaging, life-centered, God-honoring set of sermons, brilliantly overviewing the entire New Testament: a truly rich resource from which to benefit and borrow. Dr. Dever is a Puritan in twenty-first-century clothing, and it shows."
—J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College
"Mark Dever knows that Christians cannot be powerfully influenced by the Bibles they do not know. So here is the antidote: a biblical flyover that reveals the contours and glories of the New Testament landscape so that it becomes familiar geography to the soul. This book will grace many lives."
—R. Kent Hughes, visiting professor of practical theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
"A pastoral overview of the entire New Testament from the heart of a preacher who wants his people to know and live the truth. These expositions are theologically rich, biblically faithful, and loaded with superb introductions, illustrations, and applications."
—J. Ligon Duncan III, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
"Whether you are a Christian seeking a better understanding of the Bible, or a pastor seeking to preach 'the whole counsel of God,' this unique and invaluable resource provides a wealth of insight that will serve you for years."
—C. J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church, Louisville, Kentucky
"This outstanding series of bird's-eye studies of the New Testament books will enable all Christians to feed deeper from God's Word and equip teachers to feed others. They expand the mind, warm the heart, and challenge the will."
—Vaughan Roberts, Rector of St Ebbe’s, Oxford, England; Director, The Proclamation Trust; author, God's Big Picture
"Unusually prophetic utterances from the heart of the nation's capital, these overview introductions to the most salient truths of each book of the New Testament are vintage Mark Dever. Dever's scholarship abounds as all of his knowledge is here poured into truths that will transform a person, a church, or a nation."
—Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Is biblical exposition a lost art? Not if this book is any indication. This book is a gem and it belongs on every Christian's bookshelf."
—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

This book is wonderful by itself, but is especially cool if you are doing a daily Bible reading program or just reading the Bible. By reading each sermon before or during your reading of the particular book you are in the BIble, that book comes alive with better understanding and comprehension.
What is most helpful is the fact that sound, biblical theology is maintained throughout. When studying a passage of scripture, it is easy to get caught up in a verse or two and miss the "forest for the trees." This book is helpful in placing a passage in a theological context.
This is an excellent resource to keep on hand. When studying from a particular book of the New Testament, Dever provides a great place to start.
I highly recommend this for any Christian's bookshelf; clergy or laity. Further, I recommend owning the Old Testament volume as well.
The Message of the New Testament by Mark Dever IS classic, biblical, first century Christianity. The book was written by a biblical scholar who thoroughly understands the message of the New Testament and knows how to communicate that message concisely, accurately and effectively.
The book is well-written, interesting, relevant, and provides an overview of every book in the New Testament. If you want to know what genuine "classic" Christianity is all about, The Message of the New Testament is absolutely outstanding!
How I would use this resource:
1. Personal study
2. Consulting the pertinent chapter before teaching through the NT book.
3. As a resources for someone interesting in getting the big picture of the Bible.
4. Accompanying a yearly Bible reading plan.
