David Cartwright Aug 8, 2005
This book is an excellent overview of the New Testament. Especially well treated is the background leading up to 1st century Judea in culture, geography, and political standings. Done in easy to understand language.
Some terms need clarification and refinement, but that would make the book over 1000 pages...
