Description

With humour and simple illustrations, theology professor John Bergsma focuses on Matthew, Luke, Paul, and John, whose writings comprise about 90 percent of the New Testament. The gospel of Matthew, written for Jewish Christians, illuminates the life and teachings of Christ as the long-promised Messiah. In Luke's gospel, readers will delve into the infancy and Triduum narratives, as well as the Acts of the Apostles and the life of the early Church. This leads the reader to discover St. Paul and his first and arguably greatest theological treatise:Romans. Finally, the beloved apostle St. John draws us in to the unsurpassed beauty of the fourth gospel, as well as the most mysterious book of the New Testament:the book of Revelation. A concluding chapter offers suggestions for further study.
