An Introduction to the New Testament, Second Edition

An Introduction to the New Testament, Second Edition

by D.A. Carson and Douglas J. Moo

An Introduction to the New Testament focuses on "special introduction" that is historical questions dealing with authorship, date, sources, purpose, destination, and so forth.

Ezekiel: NIV Application Commentary (NIVAC)

Like the other prophets, Isaiah’s writings are full of judgment, hope, and encouragement. Israel is a nation that knows God’s truth but, rather than living it, is hardened to it. Though God’s interactions with His people seem beyond understanding, or even altogether missing, His identity as redeemer is emphasized above all else. Isaiah is sharply aware… Read more…
