Excellent clear summary situating the NT in its history context. Bruce is restrained in his judgments, judicious in his acceptance or rejection of harmonizations, and writes quite well. Jewish religious parties and sects are clearly explained, the various Herods get their due, and the uneasy relationship between Rome and Christianity is helpfully explored. Bruce also gives a more chronological account of the ministries of Peter and Paul than the NT gives, and adds many helpful contextual insights explaining part of the motivations behind many scriptural passages. An outstanding resource.
