Besides the Gospels, which are more familiar to most Christians, the New Testament can seem like a strange collection of letters to people who are very different from ourselves. How can a warning about first-century Gnostics help Christians today? What can today's believers get out of a letter about a slave returning to his master? And how can we tell if what is written in the New Testament is true history or just mythology?
A Popular Survey of the New Testament is designed to help Christians enrich their understanding of New Testament people and events. Illustrated throughout with color photos, charts, and maps, and written in an easy, informal style, this survey is accessible and enjoyable to Christians of all backgrounds.
