kregel.comacademic 3 PR AISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION One-page snapshots provide basic information in condensed form. Sidebars explore how New Testament authors might apply their writings to Christians today. Color maps and photographs throughout support the message of the text and bring biblical sites and culture to life. Very readable text appropriate for a broad audience focuses on authorial intent. Each chapter is written by a college professor who is an expert on that biblical book. Charts clearly distill complex information. Chapters close with a summary of themes and key words for review to help the student grasp and retain the central concepts. I have been using What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About for a full year and have had better response from my university students to this text than any I have used in the past two decades. My survey students find the format of this text readable and the content helpful. I highly recommend it. George H. Guthrie Union University One of the challenges of teaching NT survey courses for general university students is striking the balance between giving them too much information so that they are over- whelmed and leaving them with too little so that they are not stretched. The great value of What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About is that the editors and authors have thought deeply about this issue resulting in a volume that succeeds in finding that balance. Based on the confirmation that I have already received from students I anticipate using this text to great benefit in my survey classes for years to come. Jonathan Lunde Biola University What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About is unique in that it is written by college professors for college students. The presen- tation is clear and attractive and the result is that students have a resource that meets them at their level and leads them to a much deeper understanding of Gods Word. Scott Duvall Ouachita Baptist University While teaching New Testament Survey for more than thirty years I have been constantly looking for a textbook suitable for these freshman courses. What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About has been the best textbook to meet that need. Julion C. Vena Toccoa Falls College BIBLICAL STUDIES
