This volume, The New Testament Church, will take the reader from Pentecost to Patmos. The book will chronicle the phenomenal growth of the early church, through the book of Acts, and then add color and detail with a look at the epistles that were written to help that church grow and handle the challenges of confronting a pagan culture. The final chapter looks at Revelation and its promise of victory for those who are faithful.
