God's authoritative message in the New Testament is applicable in every age and is best understood when studied in relation to its historical context. Richard L. Niswonger presents the major events of the life and ministry of Jesus, the missionary work of Paul, and the building of the apostolic church. He does this by introducing the reader to the historical, religious, and political setting of the New Testament and recounting the events with simplicity and directness. The book has more than ninety photographs and maps.
