Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book is the textbook for the ETA course, New Testament Survey. Complete instructional resources are available for those wishing to teach the course. These materials include a copy of the text, instructor's guide, audio cassette and set of masters for making overhead transparencies. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Studying the Bible is a fascinating experience for all who desire to more clearly understand how God works with His people. Well-known Bible passages take on new dimensions when seen in the perspective of a sweeping panoramic overview. A person desiring to minister to other must also develop the spiritual depth which comes from biblical knowledge. The three-volume series Broadening Your Biblical Horizons will help you attain these goals. No book, however, can ever substitute for studying the Bible itself. Nor can the most capable person apply the Bible's message to another person's life. You will benefit most from this study if you first read the portion of the Word of God being considered as many times as possible from various good translations. Then ask yourself, "What does the Word say to me?" Applying what the Bible says to current living will result in a truly rewarding experience. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By Seeking Disciple VINE VOICE on May 17, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Without a doubt, Tenney's book does indeed present an evangelical yet scholarly view of the New Testament. Tenney makes no hesitation to say that he does believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God from the beginning. Tenney's work, however, is not a textual commentary on textual criticism. His book is a brief introduction to the New Testament.
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.

Don't be fooled by the more recent New Testament Survey books published in the last few years. Tenney's work is still the classic reference work in its field and the best introduction to the New Testament you can buy. To prove the point, this text is still used by most conservative Bible Colleges for their core NTS course. It is thorough, complete, and unparalleled, and builds a firm foundation for future Bible study.

I have to say that this is a foundational book on the background of the New Testament. Tenney is a very clear writer, clearly well studied in history as well as biblical topics. The book goes through the background of the New Testament giving cultural, political, geographical, economic, and religious influences. It also gives discussions on the authorship, date, outline/structure, content, purpose, and themes of every book in the New Testament.

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 read this book as part of a New Testament Literature course. I was pleased to learn about the archeological and historical facts that contributed to learning about the New Testament in its original context. I am able to study the scriptures and obtain a clearer picture of what is being said.

I'm not sure why all the review mention Tenney and this book is linked as an edition of Tenney's New Testament Survey. It is not. It is a small volume by Walter M. Dunnet (as the top of the page says). It seems Amazon has incorrectly linked these two titles. Be careful of which one you order.

My family and I are using this as the main text for our Bible study. My step-dad, who is one of the two people leading the study, dove straight into the book as soon as he got it.
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.

I bought this as an extra copy to avoid my daughter having to bring it home every night in an already full backpack. It arrived in perfect condition and I would buy from this seller again in a minute.

Format: Paperback
Most of the reviews here refer to the hardcover/kindle copy of Tenney's NT Survey. The link for the paperback copy of Tenney's book is mistakenly linked to Walter Dunnett's NT Survey. I'm not even sure if there is a paperback copy for Tenney's NT Survey. Fetchbook.info did not show a paperback edition. Don't get the wrong paperback like I did. If you want Tenney's book, get the hardcover/kindle copy.
