Overview

Studying the New Testament can be an exciting--and intimidating--experience. This readable survey is designed to make the adventure less daunting and more rewarding. Two experienced classroom teachers offer a new edition of their bestselling and award-winning textbook (over 250,000 copies sold).

This fourth edition takes into account the dramatic shift in the global Christian population. Other distinguishing features include abundant images, maps, and charts--all in full color; sidebars that address ethical and theological concerns and provide primary source material; focus boxes isolating key issues; chapter outlines, learning objectives, and summaries; and study questions.

An accompanying website through Baker Academic's Textbook eSources offers an array of resources for students and professors. Resources for students include flash cards and self quizzes. Resources for professors include discussion questions and a test bank.
