Overview

Introducing the New Testament Books: A Thorough but Concise Introduction for Proper Interpretation by Paul Weaver

Many introductions to the New Testament are either too simple, not providing all the necessary information, or overly complicated and written at a level out of the reach of an average person with no seminary training. This work is neither. The author is thorough, (providing over 200 footnotes), but at a level that is understandable, and in a concise manner.

In this work Weaver discusses issues of:
authorship
date
location of writing
recipients
purpose
book message

He also addresses more challenging subjects, such as:
the synoptic "problem"
the ending of the Gospel of Mark
the northern and southern Galatia theories
the genre of Hebrews
the slavific status of the readers of Hebrews
justification in the epistle of James
interpretive approaches to the book of 1 John
interpretive approaches to the book of Revelation

Weaver provides important background information concerning the following biblical cities:
Corinth
Ephesus
Philippi
Colossae
Thessalonica

For those who are visual learners, a plethora of charts are provided including:
The Seven Signs in John's Gospel
The Messianic Prophecies of Matthew's Gospel
Paul's Interactions with the Corinthian Church
Paul's Roman Imprisonments Contrasted
"these things" clauses in 1 John
Literature of the New Testament Books
The Writers of the New Testament
and Chronology of the New Testament

Also included is a link to a FREE online course by the author to complement the book (the first half is already available, the remainder to be completed shortly). This course is also entitled, "Introducing the New Testament Books"

In this volume, the author demonstrates that he is passionate about providing high quality resources at an affordable price within the reach of everyone serious about studying God's Word.
