Featured Book

New Testament Times

New Testament Times: Merrill C. Tenney
ISBN 10: 0-8010-1265-1

In New Testament Times Professor Tenney looks at the life of Jesus and the early church through the eyes of the Bible and also many writings from the time by writers outside the Bible. He starts by describing his sources. He then looks at politics, culture, Jewish heritage, and the pressure of paganism that were relevant before the birth of Jesus. He continues to discuss the life of Jesus and the development of the early church, always quoting from the Bible and including outside information available from the time. He concludes as the church is moving into the 2nd century. Included are many wonderful pictures, maps, and graphs to help someone to visualize what is being said.
