Say hello to all kinds of important and interesting literature you probably need to know about, Bible students. Helyer is great at making this literature accessible to new students and to raise interest for those who are reading only because it is assigned. Em, guilty. I found his sections on how each section of literature is important for Christians and the NT to be both interesting and helpful. I do wish, however, that he would have had a summary section at the end of each chapter, instead of just review questions. With five hundred pages of text, things are bound to slip through the cracks. A great introduction, and far more interesting than I expected.
