The writing of John Gresham Machen was characterized by clarity of thought, depth of scholarship, and an evident passion for the message of the Bible. It is a mark of his peculiar gifts that none of these features is lacking in these chapters of New Testament Introduction. Now available for the first time in book form, they are a valuable part of Machen's witness to the integrity, magnificence, and plenitude of the writings that constitute the New Testament.
In plain yet graphic fashion, the New Testament is here introduced without its message being relegated to a position of secondary importance. The groundwork of history and geography, biography and interpretation, is covered thoroughly, and yet in a manner uncluttered by references to innumerable scholars, and in a warmly vibrant style. Those beginning to study the New Testament will find this an invaluable guide, while mature students will discover it to be stimulating and penetrating to an unusual degree.
This is a popular work in the best sense, and may be used for both private and group study.
