    1. Don't be fooled by this over-sized book full of gorgeous color pictures. This is NOT a coffee-table book (although, I'd be fine with letting it sit on our coffee table). This is a fantastic, incredibly informative book written by three LDS scholars. I've been listening to a NT Scholar's podcast (NTPod by Mark Goodacre -- it's great, by the way), and many times, as Dr. Goodacre pontificates on some question in NT scholarship, I wonder what an LDS Bible scholar would say about the issue. This book [...]


    2. Just bought this because I'm teaching New Testament this year. Jehovah and the World of the Old Testament was so good, I feel like I can't live without this one. Certainly I don't want to teach without it anyway.*update: I'll be reading this all year. It's great stuff!*update: Marking this as read, even though I won't finish it in full for potentially a long, long time.This is an excellent, well-rounded resource for any LDS person wanting to get more information about life in the New Testament t [...]


    3. This is a fabulous addition to the many commentaries already in most believers' homes. The addition of new scholarship (as textual finds continue to accumulate and provide added insight into early Christianity) and lush images is indispensable for making these insights accessible to teachers and home educators. I am still in awe that these volumes, with their wise consideration of which scholarship to include and their expansion of the frontier of collaboration with many faiths on scriptural eva [...]


    4. I'm on page 293 of 327 of this book. It has increased my understanding of the New Testament, the societies and governments that affect the story, why the authors wrote what they did, and the meaning behind the messages. As never before I appreciate their sacrifices and the depth of their testimonies, though I cannot appreciate it fully at this point in my life. This is a great book. I understand a companion volume has or will soon be published (Jehovah and the World of the Old Testament) and I c [...]


    5. This is a great introduction to New Testament scholarship for LDS audiences. It has excellent research, a little bit of homily, beautiful paintings and photographs, and reads like a breeze. You need not agree with all of the authors' conclusions to recognize what a great book this is, especially considering its being published by the conservative Deseret Book. Next year's SS focuses on the NT. It's a perfect time to read this book.


    6. I have been reading chapters of this book while studying the New Testament and I really love this book. It is extremely well written and brings the world of the New Testament to life. I love all the pictures, cataloging items from antiquity with corresponding scriptures, the authors also provide pictures of archeological sites to go along with the scriptures. The chapters about The apostle Paul are definitely worth a read. You won't regret checking out this book!


    7. This book has a lot of relevant, interesting, and mind-widening knowledge about the Greek/Roman/Jewish world of Jesus' time and also about the books of the New Testament themselves. It helps to give scope to the New Testament and meaning and clarity to beliefs. It was written by my old BYU New Testament professor Holzapfel. Helped me to see through confusion. A worthwhile read!


    8. Like its companion volume on the Old Testament, this is one of the very best books on the background of the New Testament geared toward a Latter-day Saint audience. The textual commentary is up-to-date and does a fine job balancing critical scholarship with LDS perspectives, and the beautiful artwork opens up the first-century world in a wonderful way.


    9. This book is beautiful and full of information. Sometimes the writing is less than lucid, but the positives far outweigh the negatives. Lots of beautiful pictures. Lots of background information. A wonderful reference book for Latter-day Saints.


    10. This book provides very interesting background to the authors, books, and times of the New Testament. Beautiful illustrations and insightful explanations to the time and background of the New Testament. Highly recommended.


    11. A terrific companion to the New Testament. It really opened my understanding of scriptures I've read many times. It provides the historical context for the writing and gives a better understanding of its intended purpose. Lots of great pictures. Well researched; well organized; well done.


    12. I thought this one was okay, but if you have read Jesus the Christ, this seems repetitive and a bit lacking. I guess I gained a lot more insight from Talmage, so this just did not have the same spark.


    13. Not only is this so interesting and full of background information that brings the time period to life, but it is a beautiful book. I have been reading this all year along with our study in Sunday School class of the New Testament. It has been a great enrichment and I highly recommend it.


    14. Brilliant book with equal amounts of pictures and text covering all aspects life in New Testament times. Impressively written and researched. The format is varied and allows for searching out topics easily. A little pricey: $40.00. But well worth it.



    15. Beautiful coffee-table book. I enjoyed reading it very much. It's a great conversation book to use with children or novice Bible readers.


    16. It was a great book to read along with the New Testament. It has intriguing pictures to go along with each book of the New Testament. A great read!


    17. This is a beautiful reference book. I am reading it for both personal edification and (primarily) research for a fiction book I am writing.




    18. Hands down, the best book on the New Testament I have ever read. I learned so much. I loved the pictures and the solid grounding in the Roman world. This book was amazing.


    19. Excellent overview of the political, cultural, and religious environment in which Christ and his adherents lived and proselyted. A long read best done over time, and well worth it.





    20. A beautiful book full of photos, artwork, artifacts, drawings, maps, and history of the background and times of Jesus. I will go back to this book again and again.


    21. Great insight on the New Testament. Really allowed me to better understand the culture during this time in the Bible. It will be something I read here and there throughout the year.
