As most of you know, I’m deeply into my complete rewrite, revision, and expansion of my book The Untold Story of the New Testament Church, which I hope to release over the next few years.
(If you’re are new to my work and you weren’t aware of this, DO NOT buy the old version. It’s flawed and grossly incomplete. Wait until the new version releases.)
As I write the new revision, which currently is triple the size of the old version, I’m aiming at making it the most complete treatment of what happened between Pentecost and Patmos in the first century, blending together the story of Acts with all the epistles.
I’m currently up to the 325th draft with over 1,900 footnotes, utilizing the best resources by scholars and historians to support my findings (both classics from the past and the most current works).
The Zondervan Handbook to the Bible is one such source.
This work is an excellent survey of the entire Bible, but I found it particularly helpful when it quotes top-rate scholars on the New Testament material, quotes I’ve not come across anywhere else.
What follows is from the publisher:
Discover fascinating, thorough, and enriching insights into the Bible with the bestselling and internationally acclaimed fifth edition of the Zondervan Handbook to the Bible. From the history and design of the temple to God’s relationship to the universe, you’ll find it here.
The land and cultures, battles and feast days, heroes and villains of Scripture all come alive through entries of meticulous clarity and detail, and through breathtaking, full-color images.
It contains over 120 articles by an international team of experts, with over 700 color photographs, 68 maps, 20 charts, a complete Rapid Factfinder, and lots more. This is perfect for church libraries and an excellent resource for individual Scripture studies.
