“Within the pages of the New Testament, you will find the ultimate concerns of humanity. Why are we here? Why does evil exist? Is there anything beyond death? These are the kinds of questions the New Testament addresses—questions that are just as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago.”
In Jesus Is Lord: An Introduction to the New Testament, author and professor Ken Schenck, Ph.D., captures the imagination of Christian and Non-Christian alike. His detailed analysis hinges on reading the Bible in context. Looking through the cultural lens of ancient times, his study of the New Testament stands against the backdrop of Old Testament themes, worldview, and imagery. “When we read the Bible in context, we begin to see its books as a part of God’s constant workings in history…His ongoing relationship with the world.”
With refreshing candor and an eminently readable style, Dr. Schenck brings biblical characters to life, “not as words on a page, not as characters in a story, but as real people who lived in history, real people who did not always have it all figured out.” Because it links biblical concepts to timeless principles, Jesus Is Lord! will long outlive its use as a textbook, remaining a valuable resource for personal study and spiritual growth in the years ahead.
