Zondervan Giveaway

From Zondervan (Koinonia Blog):

Giveaway: A Shorter Introduction to the New Testament:

We're giving away 5 copies of Introducing the New Testament: A Short Guide to Its History and Message. This new abridgement of the classic textbook by D.A. Carson and Douglas J. Moo is perfect for personal study, Bible studies, and small groups. (Enter the Giveaway and Learn more here)

How is this new abridgement different from the textbook?
This abridgement still contains great scholarship, but you won't feel like you're reading a textbook. This is a resource ideal for personal, Sunday school, or small group use; a helpful guide to keep in your backpack, so to speak, whenever you're journeying through the New Testament and seek a deeper understanding.
Each book of the NT receives its own chapter. You will explore each book's historical context, content, and contribution to the canon. You'll also find helpful introductory chapters on the Gospels, the NT letters, and the theology of Paul. Each chapter includes discussion question that will enhance your personal study or help you discuss the content with others. Read a sample.
This book is an excellent resource! The fuller version is fantastic and Naselli has done us a great service in trimming it down for a larger audience.  We recommend this book!
