Be the first to ask a question about Encountering the New Testament. Lists with This Book. This book is not encountdring featured on Listopia. Encountfring 07, Vesselin rated it really liked it Shelves: Sep 19, Greg Dill rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have thoroughly enjoyed the study and reading of this book.
I also took the time to answer the questions posed at the end of each chapter. The study of New Testament survey gave me a detailed glimpse into the background of each individual book contained within the New Testament.
This book shared with me insight into the authorship, the date, and the place of which they were written. It also gave me insight into what life was like during the time these God-inspired books were written. Perhaps m I have thoroughly enjoyed the study and reading of this book.
Perhaps more importantly, it also shared with me as to why these books were written by men who had such zeal for Christ that they were willing to count the cost, even if it meant certain death at the hands of their persecutors.
Paul took at least three missionary journeys for certain, but possibly several more. His overwhelming love for Christ and his desire to see others saved from the eternal torments of hell is what drove Paul all neww the Roman world.
Like all New Testament believers, Paul was willing to suffer persecution, torture, and suffering, all for the sake of the cross. What a great model of inspiration Paul is to not only me, but for all believers who are charged with the task of sharing the Gospel to the end of the earth.
Finally, it is my hope from the knowledge that I have gained from the completion of this book, that God will use it not for selfish ambition or gain, but solely for the purpose to glorify God, especially amongst the people that God will place in my path.
I have indeed learned much, and I look forward to sharing this knowledge in my Bible studies amongst the Roma people of Albania, where my family and I will soon begin serving.
Jul 11, Nathan rated it liked it Shelves: This is a Survey of the New Testament. It has great information, maps and statements.
It will NOT make you grow you scholarly. It has miniscule information in regards to theology. If you want to have a deeper understanding of scriptural verses, stick to the commentaries and the overviews they provide at the beginning. Apr 09, Tim rated it liked it Shelves: A good introduction to the New Testament that gives surface level basic info about each of the books. Dec 17, Erin Clements rated it liked it. This was my textbook for New Testament Survey, and we were unfortunately required to read it cover to cover.
Encountering the New Testament: A Historical and Theological Survey
It frequently went from very interesting to very boring and back again, so it earns an overall three stars. Oct 11, Ruth Noemi Rojas rated it it was amazing. I read this textbook in a theology class.
Apr 15, Maria rated it it was ok Shelves: It’s the Bible 11 textbook! It really isn’t as bad as it seems. There’s a lot of interesting information about, well, the New Testament. One of the things that sticks out is the discussion trstament the authorship and dating of each book. It puts things into a historical context. It is a little boring. And it is a textbook. But at least it has pictures. And interesting little side notes every once in a while.
And I admit encounterin currently-reading is a little generous. It’s more like sporadically- Hehehe!
It’s more like sporadically-reading. Dec 29, Laura rated it liked it Shelves: This testamdnt put me to sleep on a couple of occasions. It had a nice set-up and a variety of pictures and tables to read, but I just didn’t find it interesting. There were so many names and dates that I had a hard time keeping track of everything.
Encountering the New Testament, 3rd Edition | Baker Publishing Group
I wasn’t the biggest fan of this book, to say the least. Apr 17, Beatrice rated it liked it Shelves: Elwepl is actually my textbook this year for Bible. We don’t read it that often but it is fairly interesting. The section where they date each book is sometimes hard to follow because it gives five different dates and then says it is probably this one. Other wise it is interesting and gives cool details and photos of different sites.
Aug 13, Jonathan rated it really liked yestament. Well written more basic Evangelical Introduction to the New Testament.
Comprehensive overview of the New Testament, dealing with the history and summary of each book, it’s authorship and place in history, etc. Slight AoG skew to some matters, and some random personal views thrown in, but overall a valuable resource for the beginning biblical scholar. Excellent book, elwsll enjoyed studying it and learnt heaps.
Well written and well presented. Jul 10, Kathy rated it it was amazing. Somewhat difficult read, good comprehensive enciuntering covering each book in the New Testament. I used this book for a NT Survey class and was pleasantly surprised with its contents.
It is perfect for a NT Survey encountring and it is written especially for classes of that nature. Jun 03, Rachelina Larasati rated it really liked it. It does help me to understand the bible more by understanding the background story when the bible was written. Mar 02, Beth rated it it was ok Shelves: This book offers a very simplistic overview of the New Testament and does not include much of the nuance that exists in the scholarship.
