A Popular Survey of the New Testament, Norman L. Geisler

Baker Books

Understanding the New Testament is a daunting but exciting task. Our world is so different from that of the first century. Yet it is important to understand the context and content of the New Testament if we are to be faithful followers. Now in paper, this survey addresses the who, what, where, when, why, and how questions that readers of the Bible may have, such as:

  • How can we tell if what is written in the New Testament is true history or just mythology?
  • When were these books written and why?
  • What can today's believers get out of letters addressed to people who lived two millennia ago
How can we tell if what is written in the New Testament is true history or just mythology? When were these books written and why? What can today's believers get out of letters addressed to people who lived two millennia ago

Written in an easy, informal style, this survey is accessible and enjoyable to anyone who wants to better understand the New Testament.


Popular Survey of the Old Testament,Norman L. Geisler

Baker Books

This survey is illustrated with black and white photos, charts, and maps. Best-selling author Dr. Norman Geisler writes in an easy, informal style allowing any Christian a resource to understand Old Testament people and events.

Each Old Testament book is discussed, its cultural and historical background explained as well as its theme.

Two introductory Christ-centered chapters (Christ: The Key to the Inspiration and Canonization of the Bible and Christ: The Key to the Interpretation of the Bible) lay the foundation for the four sections of the book.


ACTS The Amazing History of the Early Church, Jet Witherspoon Toole

Word Aflame Press

While teaching at conquerors Bible College in Portland Oregon, Jet Witherspoon saw the need for a textbook on acts. After two years of study, research, writing and rewriting her manuscript, it was published in 1971.

For the last 30 years this dynamic chapter by chapter study on the history of the early church has been used in numerous Bible colleges. The student will become familiar with the first hundred years of church history and understand the historical and doctrinal value of the book of Acts.
