    I find the mediocre reviews here hard to understand (except for the annoying problem of dates mentioned by Caleb below -- let's get that fixed up if we haven't already!). I think this is a great point of entry into the NT world. It covers a great deal of ground in a short compass, is written accessibly and even winsomely, and has great bibliography (though dated now, admittedly). I recommend it still to my students, along with Everett Ferguson's more comprehensive book on backgrounds (the better choice for the more motivated readers/learners).

    This book was recommended to me by a professor of mine so I bought it on my Logos account. Although I enjoyed the background information that I learned from this book, it did have one very major issue. When this book was put into electronic form it changed all of the A.D.'s to B.C.'s, but left the B.C.'s alone. This makes it very confusing and leaves the reader guessing whether the text is actually supposed to say A.D. and says B.C., or if it is correct in saying B.C. This makes a lot of the dates in the book useless, since you don't know whether it is A.D. or B.C. that the author is talking about.
