So I have finally finished this resource guide. That also means that I have finally finished reading the Bible - it took 4 years to read cover to cover but I have learned a lot. I appreciate the incite that this manual gave. I liked finding out more about the authors of each of the books in the New Testament and their background information. I liked learning about details of life during the time of Christ. I enjoyed delving deeper into the life and teachings of Christ and how it affects my life....more

I loved this instructional companion to the New Testament. While the going was slow to make it through this book, it answered many of my questions, and cleared up a lot of my confusion, by drawing on historical and cultural aspect of the time which are unfamiliar to the modern reader. Highly recommended!

Recommends it for: Studying the New Testament on their own.
I found this a very difficult format to study. The older kids and I tried for a while, but it never was a good fit for our study. I understand the reason for the format...and I might try it again as an individual, but it was difficult as a "group" study. There seemed to be no cohesion...

It has been a joy to get to study the New Testament so in depth this year for Sunday School. Since I've been teaching Gospel Doctrine, I wanted to really study it besides just the manual, and so I read every word of this book. Great insights and interesting history!

Good companion to getting back to more guided study of the scriptures. I never took 210 & didn't use this manual in 211 so I thought I'd give it a shot. The guide does feel dated, but still had some interesting insights, thoughts, and facts.

I have really loved reading the Church Institute student manuals as I study the scriptures. The manuals help me understand background and cultures that explain the meaning of phrases and versus that I wouldn't otherwise understand.

Read this many years ago in college while studying the New Testament. Lots of insightful commentary, and lots of scholarly info to aid in understanding the scriptures.
