Tenney's book does a wonderful job of presenting the historical background of the New Testament and using the book of Acts, he traces the footsteps of the Apostles as they wrote the New Testament Canon. At the end of each chapter he includes a very helpful bibliograpy to help the reader study deeper the various books, archeology, and history of what he has dealt with rather quickly.
I used this book as a freshmen in Bible college and it had a profound influence on my personal understanding of the background and history of the New Testament and the early Church. I highly recommend anyone serious about studying Scripture to purchase and read Tenney's book.
This is a superb survey of the New Testament, used in many introductory courses on the subject for good reason. I highly recommend this book to all Christians seeking to understand the New Testament better.
I find that the historical background in the text provides a lot of cultural understanding of the peoples of the New Testament. I found that I am better able to understand a lot of the teachings of Christ and His apostles after reading this book.
However, this is not for readers who want a simple understanding of the Bible and New Testament times. It is very indepth and I do not recommend it for light study. There are many other surveys out there that are basic outlines that are much better than this one.
With that being said, if you are interested in a strong and deep understanding of the New Testament in both a religious and historical setting, then this is the book for you.
