Publisher Comments:

Find yourself in the midst of New Testament times and events with NEW TESTAMENT STORY: AN INTRODUCTION, Fourth Edition. Author David L. Barr demonstrates how every New Testament writing is located within the context of a story, even if the individual piece does not express a story itself. The book helps you critically examine each piece to uncover its significance and meaning and gain a stronger understanding of the language used, as well as the historical and cultural differences between Biblical and modern times.
