Read an Excerpt

The New Testament continues the story begun in the Old Testament. It is the marvelous climax of God's inspired revelation to mankind. In the Old Testament, God had promised to bring blessing and redemption to man through the messiah, and the New Testament is the record of God's doing just that. The New Testament is much smaller than the Old Testament and it covers a period of time far shorter than that of the Old. But the New Testament covers that most significant era in the history of man-those years when God became man and brought salvation to a lost mankind. The NT is worthy of a lifetime of study, as it answers the most significant questions people have asked: What is the purpose of life? Is there any real hope? What is God like? Can I be freed from guilt and sin? Am I loved?
