Description:

Today many Christians know the basic elements of this story and enjoy an intimate, deeply personal love for many passages of the New Testament. However, few understand the breadth of this story, much less how to interpret each book. Many of us gravitate to familiar texts but dont feel confident interpreting more difficult chapters. The aims of this book are simple: to assist students to become alert, capable readers of the New Testament?to guide them through its many books, giving not only essential background information but also a digest of the New Testament's most important teachings. Scriptures by understanding not only our own interpretative contexts, but also the original context of the New Testament. The context of antiquity should control how we understand the New Testament today.
