Publisher's Summary

Gain fresh insights into the New Testament in this life-changing course by celebrated Bible translator who has taught at Oxford and the University of London.

Perhaps no other text has so greatly influenced Western civilization as the New Testament. And yet, it also remains widely misunderstood - even among lifelong Christians.

Now, The New Testament: A Bible Study Course answers your most important questions about its 27 books. Brilliantly presented by Fr. Nicholas King, these 36 engaging lectures give you access to modern scholarship on the New Testament. Fr. King's original translations breathe new life into the words you have so often heard and studied, accurately conveying the mood of the original documents.

After a fascinating general introduction to the New Testament, you will take a fresh look at the Pauline epistles. You will enjoy four lectures on each of the Gospels before looking at Acts of the Apostles, the general epistles, and Revelation. Finally, you will consider the important themes of Christ's Resurrection, divine inspiration, and the necessity of the Old Testament.

Above all, you will gain a fuller sense of Jesus as a devout Jew who was telling the old story of God and the People of God in a new way. And as Jesus preached, the gospel message is open to all. This scriptural journey will fill you with the excitement and freshness that pervades the writings of the New Testament. Embark on it today.

Grace and gravitas

Each of us has a style of teacher we prefer. For me, Father King is perfect. I love his voice and quiet, unassuming delivery with just a touch of dry British wit. He encourages us to read the New Testament and to decide for ourselves whether or not the Christ we find therein is someone to whom we wish to give our lives. This is not a throwaway comment or altar call invitation: it is a foundational question of the Christian faith.

I found much that I had not considered before, even after decades of reading the Bible. Sometimes we are too familiar with what we have read for so long. His questions and considerations were very useful to me. His erudition and scholarship are evident in his historical and textual comments.

Truly, Father King is a gifted teacher who encourages the student to investigate and contemplate the truth. He doesn't preach and yell and make a spectacle of himself as he does so. How rare this is!I found this title after listening to many other Bible studies. What I liked best about this title is that here the New Testament is the star, not its teacher.

Protestants often repeat the libel that Catholics do not know what is in the Bible. This is a calumny, an ad hominem attack aimed at us when we fail to submit to the heresy of Sola Scriptura. Many Catholics do read the Bible, know what it is in it, and love the word of God. If you are not yet one who does, this title may change that. If you are, Father King will deepen and enhance your faith and study. I recommend it without reservation.
