Overview

The Exploring the New Testament Collection are two textbooks which cover the New Testament, both written by authors who have extensive experience in teaching students in their first two years of university-level study. This series is perfect for someone looking for a New Testament survey that can be as broad or immersive as you see fit. The series easily facilitates teaching the material to classes or small groups.

Each book provides an exploratory approach which encourages and enables students to engage the Scriptures for themselves, and not simply as passive learners. They offer activities and challenges at introductory and intermediate levels, together with key background information needed to enable students to work at the required level, and ideas for further thought and reading.

With your Logos Bible Software the entire Exploring the New Testament Collection is fully searchable and easily accessible. Scripture references are linked to your favorite Bible translations and original texts, and important theological concepts are linked to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and the wealth of resources in your digital library.

This book is written in an exploratory approach which propels students toward engaging the Gospels and Acts for themselves. It offers activities and challenges to both the Scriptural novice and to those a little more comfortable with handling the Scriptures, offering important background information that will enable the student to work at the required level. On top of that, Exploring the New Testament, Vol. 1: The Gospels and Acts offer ideas for deeper thought and further reading for even greater challenge. It is an excellent textbook for courses on the Gospels and Acts.

[A] gem… avoiding the twin dangers of overwhelming the student with detail or oversimplifying complex issues, the authors offer invaluable summaries, charts and questions that will deepen learning…

—Michael B. Thompson, Vice-Principal, Ridley Hall

I know no better book for its purpose and I am sure it will be extensively used.
