- Publisher Studying the Bible is a fascinating experience for all who desire to more clearly understand how God works in the lives of His people. However, the specific books and verses take on new dimensions when seen as a sweeping panorama. This book, second in a new series, will enrich both the believer's knowledge and life with its survey approach. By presenting an overview of the New Testament, it acquaints readers with the major literary divisions and its unity as a whole. Chapters conclude with application and exploration activities, as well as discussion questions which not only test readers' grasp of the materials but also provide opportunity for a more intensive study. This well-executed book will help any Christian who desires to fulfill the command of 2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to show yourself approved unto God; a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth

- Publisher Preface" Tell me, sir, " the sincere young woman inquired anxiously of the preacher, " What is the Bible all about?" After serious thought the preacher replied, " My girl, the Bible is all about Jesus." That, essentially, is the message of the New Testament. It is all about Jesus. From the story of the humble birth in Bethlehem as recorded in the Gospels, to the scene of the glorious exaltation as King of Kings and Lord of Lords as depicted in the book of Revelation, the subject is the same. At the beginning of this study of the New Testament, the student will do well to look for the Lord Jesus Christ and His teachings.Before a study of the books of the New Testament is undertaken in systematic fashion, two preliminary matters of great importance must be considered. The New Testament has a background which, when properly considered, will help to illuminate the books themselves. Chapter 1, therefore, deals with the three most important areas of this setting: the Hebrew,,the Greek, and the Roman. Following this treatment, the chapter presents an overview, or " bird's eye view, " of the whole New Testament. This approach, sometimes called the " synthetic, " is vital to acquaint the student with the major divisions or parts of the New Testament and the unity of the whole.Having completed chapter 1, you, the student, are ready to investigate each book separately. Chapters 2 through 12 consider the respective writers and their writings--the purpose, outline, main content, and leading features.The attention of the reader is called to " Application Activities" at the end of each chapter and the bibliography at the end ofthe book. These serve at least a dual purpose: (1) They provide opportunity for you to carry on your studies in a more detailed and intensive manner whenever you wish to do so; (2) They provide information regarding matters
