This sequel to "Old Testament Alive!" presents an overview of the main events of the New Testament, where people come alive and talk to the reader. Lucifer returns as a cool and worldly young man who presents an ironic and cynical view of the unfolding action. Pilate's wife complains about her social duties in Jerusalem during Passover, Judas explains his political ambitions, Peter bares his soul to you after he denies Jesus three times, and Paul plays a crucial role in introducing and explaining the new Christian faith. Dr. Jones's book has humor as well as depth, and is an excellent review of the main events and the essential message of the New Testament. The publication has 132 evocative color images created by gifted professional photographers worldwide.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING: My husband and I were eager to blend with Western society when we came to Canada, so we enrolled in the Bible study taught by Dr. Jones. Her book presents it in an interesting way. We went back 2,000 years when the people in the Bible talked to us about their struggles and hopes and fears. The class helped us to understand and embrace Western culture, and it reminded us that we are all one human family, no matter when and where we live. It was so joyful and fun to join a group of people to discuss the Christian faith.
