Reviews - What do customers think about Discovering the New Testament: Community and Faith?
An excellent value! Mar 15, 2006
Alex Varughese (editor) and his team of contributors (Neale et al) have produced a first rate introduction to the New Testament suitable for college level classes. Yet its readibility, ample illustrations, recent scholarship, and clear uncomplicated style would also make it an excellent addition to any home library. Those who are interested in exploring the Christian faith would do well to begin their journey here.
From the cover Aug 10, 2005
From the book: This book is a solid scholarly contribution to the introductory college level study of the New Testament. It not only provides the essential content of each book of the New Testament together with the basic scholarly issues of introduction and interpretation but also through the judicious use of sidebars, pictures, maps, charts, and diagrams informs the reader on the historical, cultural, and sociological context of the New Testament writings. --M. Robert Mulholland Jr.
