102 Fascinating Bible Studies on the New Testament By Dr. William H. Marty This is a pretty great commentary and study of the New Testament gospels. It is helpful in understanding the context and culture while serving thought-provoking questions to dig deeper into what God is revealing through His Word. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion which I share here. https://simplyannehere.wordpress.com

102 Fascinating Bible Studies on the New Testament is exactly what the title says. Written by Dr. William H. Marty, recently retired from Moody Bible Institute, each study includes an introductory article and then multiple questions where the reader engages with scripture. What makes this study different is that instead of being straight through the New Testament or even a specific book of the Bible, it takes a chronological-topical approach. For example, when studying the birth of Christ the study questions engage with all of the birth narratives. For various topical studies, several passages are used to study the topic instead of just one passage. I had mixed feelings about this approach. I liked how Dr. Marty pulled numerous passages together demonstrating how scripture works together and exposing readers to a variety of passages. However, there were times when moving from passage to passage and pulling out a specific verse was troubling as the reader was unable to study the verse in context. 102 Fascinating Bible Studies on the New Testament would be a good study for newer believers and could be used as an individual or group study. Dr. Marty does make it clear in the study that he does not believe in baptismal regeneration. I also found his discussion of immigrants in his study on Philemon off-putting and a stretch. Beyond those sections the study is straightforward. This study is a good follow-up to the previously published 102 Fascinating Bible Studies. I hope there will be a 102 Fascinating Bible Studies on the Old Testament as well.

A great resource for Bible Study Dr. William H. Marty, teacher at the Moody Bible Institute for thirty-seven years, presents "102 Fascinating Bible Studies on the New Testament" which is published by Bethany House Publishers. The Bible Studies start with a short commentary-like introduction and contain a series of questions that can be answered if one reads the corresponding Bible references. The Bible Studies are organized by categories that cover the whole New Testament as well as some doctrine. The questions lead the reader to reflection because many of them are open-ended. The memory verses at the end of each chapter help to deepen the information gained through the study. Additionally Marty also provides a short bibliography at the end of the book. Marty is also willing to present some topics that are a bit difficult or controversial, confesses that it is impossible to be completely unbiased. He states in the introduction: "It is possible to agree to disagree if these passages are not foundational to orthodox Christian doctrine." I appreciated that this book covers all parts of the New Testament (Jesus' ministry, Acts, Paul's letters, other epistles, Revelation) and some doctrine. This presents a great choice and the readers can choose what they want to study. The book is not for those who are looking for an in-depth commentary but for those readers who are looking for a workbook. It does not offer ready-made answers either. It is for Christians (and Non-Christians) who want to dig into God's Word. It can be used for everybody (women, men, various age groups, individuals, or small groups). The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. #102FascinatingBibleStudiesOnTheNewTestament #NetGalley

This book is comprised of 102 studies which contain a short study on a particular topic, Study questions and a memory verse. The study questions are not simply a regurgitation of the message but are thought-provoking ideas that make you search yourself for answers. Each section provides a quick way to begin each morning. The questions can offer an opportunity for reflection throughout the day. The memory verse can be practiced whenever an extra moment presents itself. I received an ARC from Bethany House through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion or rating of this book.
