The New Testament: A Taster by Mark J. Keown
In The New Testament: A Taster, Mark J. Keown explores the New Testament. The first chapter grounds the NT documents in the historical, religious, and social background of the first-century Roman world. Chapter Two discusses the four Gospels, their distinctives, and their relationships. In Chapters three to six, aspects of the Kingdom of God, the central theme of the Gospels are summarized. Chapter Seven discusses the first church in Jerusalem with an eye on church today. Then, three chapters are devoted to Paul’s life and mission, his thought and leadership, and his letters. The final two chapters introduce Hebrews and the General Epistles and Revelation.
