Starting New Testament Study provides an introduction to the books of the New Testament, their authors, and their context for those just beginning to study the Bible.
It emphasizes “learning by doing”: alongside the main narrative sweep come text boxes that introduce readers to areas of critical scholarship, maps, timelines, and questions and exercises that encourage direct engagement with the biblical text.
This helpful and encouraging book will enable beginning students to start analyzing New Testament texts for themselves, developing their confidence and skill in this area.
In the Logos edition of Starting New Testament Study, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with passage guides, word studies, and a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can delve into God’s Word like never before!
