"All too often," says Irving L. Jensen, "students of New Testament surveys read the instruction of others regarding the content of the Bible books but fail to spend time reading the Bible text for themselves. This book has been written to start readers onto paths of study in each New Testament book, to search and discover for themselves the great themes of each book."
The main purpose of this New Testament survey guide is to involve readers personally in a first hand survey of the Bible text and to lead readers into a time of personal reflection as they consider practical spiritual application of the Bible books studied.

“Hebrews shows us that just as God led the Israelites from Egypt through the barren wilderness, protecting them from danger, supplying all their needs, teaching them, training them, and eventually bringing them into the rich land of Canaan, so Christ is at this present time helping His children, by intercession, inspiration, instruction, and indwelling, to enter into the spiritual rest land of abundant living, a taste of the heavenly glories to come.” (Page 410)
