What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About is a fresh approach to understanding what is really important in the New Testament. This introductory survey concentrates on the most important themes of each book and letter in the New Testament. By asking what Matthew (or any other New Testament author) really cared about when he wrote, we discover what to pay attention to when we read, and why it makes a difference to us today. Chapters are organized around each of the nine New Testament authors and focus on what each author really cared about in order to emphasize their concerns-not ours. More than one hundred sidebars explore how New Testament authors might apply their writings to Christians today. One-page snapshots examine introductory issues (who, when, where, why), providing essential information in condensed form. Five maps and more than fifty color photographs bring biblical sites and culture to life.
