Reviews - What do customers think about Chronological And Background Charts Of The NT?
A very helpful resource. Aug 18, 2009
This is my first review for Zondervan. I must say that they hit a home run with this book. I received it today in the post. I do not normally review a book this quickly, but was curious about this book.
I sat down for about an hour poring over the book. The introduction stated that there is an abundance of information available about the New Testament. I must say that they packed much of it into this one.
I was amazed at all of the charts that were in the book.
I shall list some of them here:
Political and Religious Leaders
First Century Emporors, Prefects, Rulers in Judea, and in Israel
Roman Emporors in NT Times
The High Priests
The Books of the NT (arranged according to the time of writing as well as charts on the doctrinal and literary classification of various books).
Weights and Measures
NT quotations of OT passages
Literary relationship of the Synoptics
A comparative chart of the four gospels
The five gospels of the Jesus Seminar
The Apostolic Age
Information about Acts
Chronological charts of the Apostolic age
The Pauline epistles
Various perspectives on Revelation
The list of charts goes on and on, it seems.
The charts deal with everything from the secular history of the times to the history of the NT books.
I can see how this work would be very useful to any careful student of the NT. It is a good resource. It is also easy to read. The font is easy on the eyes, and the layout is not overly cluttered.
I highly recommend it.
Disappointed Aug 7, 2009
THERE'S NO CD! I'm debating whether to keep it or return it. I've seen, and have, other chart books by Zondervan which have the CD with all the charts in it on PowerPoint. It makes things so much easier when teaching a class. Second, this book is primarily tables of information which would probably be better in paragraph form anyway. There are several charts and tables which are useful but the value for classroom usage is excessively limited. Finally, there are no maps. When discussing the background of the New Testament one of the critical factors is understanding where everything is located. I expected more from Zondervan, particularly since this is the new edition that was just released.
Good information Feb 6, 2008
This book has some good information in it that helps put the Bible in an order that makes it easier to understand.
comprehensive set of charts Jun 2, 2007
I have looked for many of these charts, but never could find them all in one place. Also, he created many new ones that are very useful for me, and for the class I teach.

I have ordered about 10-12 recently for a Bible class we are having. They all have arrived promptly and in great condition. Thank you this site!
