    This book has made enjoying the New Testament more than a desire, but a reality

    Not as good as I had hoped

    There are some good insights, but I found the book lacking in deep insights from the new testament that I was looking for. It is lacking a comprehensive index to help find passages of scripture as well that has made using it as a study guide quite cumbersome. I hate to be negative about a well-intentioned study guide, but if I could go back, I wouldn't buy the book again.

    SO impressed!

    The "timely insights and timeless messages" part of the title is absolutely accurate. I was so impressed with the historical research, scriptural cross references and cultural insights that added a layer of explanation to the New Testament. I am so glad I read it side by side with the New Testament this year. Some things I had passed over before as trivial or less important took on a whole new meaning for me.
