Good Oversight Jun 11, 2009
There is of course some disagreement about hermeneutics. How much do we need to know the back-story? Did God really intend to keep the meaning of the text hidden until archaeologists could unlock some secrets for us?
I'm inclined to say that the history is not vital to understanding, but it does add a richness to both understanding and teaching. We used this book in my New Testament I class and I found it to be quite helpful to bringing first-century Palestine to life.

I'm not pleased with the service. The book took longer than promised to get to me. I'm way behind in my classes and have to play catch up. I wished the book would have been received on it's promised delivery date. Thanks.

New Testament History
This book, while it contains a plethora of information, is written like what it is: a textbook. This book is not for the casual Bible reader, it is for scholars, and is written as such. A casual Bible reader is likely to find themselves over their head.
Added: I finished this book. Towards the end, there was no order to the end of the book. The chronology jumped all over the place. Simply not worth the money paid for...especially since this is supposed to be a scholarly book.
