Understanding the New Testament through a contextual lens.
For all the joy there is in the New Testament, you’ll also find plenty of misfortune and times of crisis. The lens through which you view these periods of adversity influences what you learn as you study God’s Word. From Crisis to Christ looks at how the biblical text addresses and reflects on more than two dozen contextual crises in the ministry of Jesus and the rise and progress of the Christian movement. Author Paul N. Anderson presents beautifully crafted introduction notes for each book of the New Testament from literary, historical, and theological perspectives, giving you a much wider understanding of the entire Bible.
