This New Testament introduction by John Gresham Machen (1881-1937), principal founder of Westminster Seminary and of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, is marked by clarity of thought, depth of scholarship, and passion for the message of the Bible. The author introduces the New Testament without relegating its message 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. 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. Subjects covered are the historical background of Christianity, the early history of Christianity, Christianity established among the Gentiles, the principles and practice of the gospel, the presentation and defense of Christianity, the Apostolic Church and the Church of today.
