My friends always argue with me about the meaning of scriptures. This is a must-have. Get the Old Testament one too. I only regret that you all did not go into a lot of detail about angels and nephelim. Are you trying to give us a reformed secular version of the gospel that has a small universe humans-only view of God and the multi-verse? Just kidding. This is full of accurate historic information. Like all great works, there is room for improvement, but I like it.

Very good for an introduction to the New Testament. The two authors are theologically conservative and present the material well. Highly recommended.

In "Encountering the New Testament", the chapters move sequentially, which reads like a standard text book. It wasn''t bad, however I was hoping the format would have been then same as "Encountering the Old Testament" which is broken down like an outline, and contains a chapter summary before an entire section, (i.e. Pentateuch, History, Poetry and Wisdom, Major Prophets, Minor Prophets). In "Encountering the Old Testament" the pre-chapter summaries allowed the reader to understand the intent of each section before diving into each book separately, this lacking in "Encountering the New Testament". The information is still really good, however for someone who hasn''t had a formal teaching of the chronology of Paul''s travels I found it disorienting.

Like the OT Version, I bought this for a class and found it very helpful! Great depth and many interesting historical and archeological insights. This was required for a seminary course and supplemented with other readings. I consider myself a beginner student of the individual NT books. This, by itself, would not be sufficient for an overview of the NT. It is a great supplement that I will return to. I would strongly recommend this for Christian High School upper level or entry level undergrad students.

I purchased this for use in one of my college classes called "Survey of the New Testament." It is a great textbook packed with easy to understand information telling of the history and characters of the New Testament and how it evolved from many of the Old Testament books. This will remain in my library for years to come, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a desire to understand the history and characters during the life and times of Jesus Christ.

The book begins with a major, inexcusable flaw that destroys its credibility from the get-go. From the ''Preface'' on page vii it goes directly to page xi, the backside of it is page x, and the facing page a duplicate page xi. In other words, pages xiii and ix are completely missing and page xi printed twice. This is a college level textbook?

great book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 15, 2011
Surprisingly heavy! Well worth its weight though, if you are looking to develop a deeper understanding of New Testament times. Provides an accurate balanced view (with explanations), has study questions and key points summary at the end of each chapter.
