Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801012651, Hardcover)This popular guide to the first-century world is now available in full color. The correct and full interpretation of Scripture often depends on having an understanding of the culture in which the writers of the Bible lived. These men naturally spoke in the imagery and circumstances of their political and historical situations, and translating their words into our language and modern context can prove difficult. Merrill Tenney's New Testament Times thoroughly explores and explains the political, social, and cultural forces of the first century, allowing you a deeper understanding of the world in which the Christian church was born. You will find full-color photographs, maps, and charts throughout the book to help you visualize that world. An excellent tool for pastors, Bible study groups, and individual Christians, New Testament Times provides the answers to many questions we pose as we study God's Word. Merrill C. Tenney (1904-1985) was professor of Bible and theology and dean of the graduate school at Wheaton College. He wrote many books, including the New International Bible Dictionary, John: The Gospel of Belief, and Galatians: The Charter of Christian Liberty.
