A Beginner's Guide to Understanding the New Testament
Whether you have been in church your whole life or are still unsure of what you believe regarding Jesus -- reading the Bible can be a daunting task. The New Testament was written a long time ago, by people living in a very different time, who were experiencing very different circumstances from many of us. Over the years, I have read countless books, some scholarly and some practical, in an effort to have a better grasp of the “Big Picture”of the New Testament story. In all of my study, I have found no single source to be more helpful or clear than A Book You Will Actually Read on the New Testament by Mark Driscoll. In the following pages, you will find a condensed version of this work -- supplemented with research from my own study over the years. I would encourage you to read it, and other books like it as you seek to become a student of God’s Word. In the meantime, I pray this will give you a deeper hunger and understanding of this wonderful section of sacred scripture.
