By K. Slater VINE VOICE on 21 Nov. 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Not as comprehensive as I expected. All very sound stuff but not a book to read over again for me. I guess the book is based on sermons and lectures given by Mark Dever. It is not easy to track down topics or themes here, but it is a good overview of the NT message. If you are looking for a detailed commentary on everything in the NT this is probably not the book for you. As a general read it is fine.

As usual Dever writes with clear outlines of thought, clarity from beginning to end. Each New Testament book explained with details about its author and it purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Picture Sermons 12 May 2006
By Rebecca Stark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Do you like expository sermons, or do you associate them with boring explanations of every single phrase in a passage of scripture, with no detail too picayune for a long explanation? I happen to like the sort of expository preaching that moves phrase by phrase, or word by word (There is just nothing so trivial in text that I'm not interested!); but I know some of you are big picture sort of people, and if that's what you are, then The Message of the New Testament by Mark Dever contains your kind of expository sermons: Sermons that focus on the main themes--the big picture--of scripture.

There are twenty-eight sermons in this book--one overview of every book of the New Testament, and one introductory sermon overviewing the New Testament as a whole. Each sermon was originally preached by Mark Dever in his church--Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. Overview-type sermons are unusual (I haven't heard many, have you?), and I would guess that they are more difficult to prepare than the more usual sort of expository sermon. I can only begin to imagine how much work it was to produce this series of sermons, but I'm glad Mark Dever went to all the trouble. It's a fresh new way of looking at the New Testament and what it is teaching us.

The main portion of The Message of the New Testament is divided into three sections: [...] Jesus, containing the sermons on each of the gospels and Acts; Key Ideas for the Times, containing the sermons on all of Paul's epistles; and Living in the Real World, containing the rest--Hebrews through Revelation. Each sermon contains a main body, concluding applications, a prayer, and then a section of questions for reflection that build and extend upon what could be learned from the sermon.

This is a long book--547 pages--and as you might expect with sermons, the text is dense, although not difficult to understand. I started The Message of the New Testament in January and read some of it almost every day, but only finished it up this week. It's not the kind of book I could skim because I wanted to get every single bit of it, since there was so much to learn.

Don't let that it took me so long to make my way through this book scare you off. It was certainly worth the time and effort. I looked forward to each reading session, even if it was only a few stolen minutes while I waited in the car for my son to finish up one of his activities. If I hadn't received the companion to this book--The Message of the Old Testament--in the mail last week, I probably would have been a little sad to finish it up. But as things stand, I've got a new, 800+ page book to start.

And I'd be willing to bet that if you take the time to read it, you'll learn something, too. I might even promise you that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collection of sermons as a study resource 13 Feb. 2006
By Christian Book Previews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mark Dever has written a companion volume to his forthcoming book The Message of the Old Testament: Promises Made. Both books serve as overviews of each Testament. Dever is the Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. In this book, he has compiled 27 of his sermons - where every chapter is described as an "expositional overview sermon" on each of the New Testament books. Dever explains in the introduction, "The sermons in this book are more expositional than topical, but they are expositional with a difference. Rather than looking at particular Scripture passages through a microscope, we are looking down from an airplane." (page 16)

What an amazing resource for believers, lay leaders, and pastors alike who are looking for a decidedly biblical, yet practical, overview of the New Testament. Since each chapter was originally a sermon, there is a very logical flow to the reading. The accompanying outlines, accessible writing style, and scholarly approach to the material makes for an invaluable teaching and study resource. Each chapter also concludes with some thought-provoking questions that are great for personal study or small group dynamics.

I wholeheartedly recommend this exceptional resource for its doctrinally sound, yet very understandable "Big Picture" treatment of the meaning of the New Testament. This will be a classic in personal and church libraries for many years to come. Buy one for yourself and get one for your pastor as an indispensable gift to enrich your pastor's pulpit. - Todd Burgett, Christian Book Previews.com

By S. Grotzke - Published on Amazon.com

These sermons/chapters dedicated to each book of the New Testament give a helpful overview of the New Testament.
How I would use this resource:
1. Personal study
2. Consulting the pertinent chapter before teaching through the NT book.
3. As a resources for someone interesting in getting the big picture of the Bible.
4. Accompanying a yearly Bible reading plan.
5.0 out of 5 stars You want this book if you want to know what the New Testament books are all about 31 May 2013
By JR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This compilation of books of sermons by Mark Dever, is perhaps the best collection of one person's interpretation of the New Testament books of the Bible you will read. Mark Dever is definitely "Bibled Up". His theology is sound, solid, and doesn't spin off into space with new or clever takes on the BIble...just the pure, unchanged Word of God. And Mark Dever is able to share each book with an easy flowing style that is easy to understand so you walk away changed by it having understood more than when you started.
This book is wonderful by itself, but is especially cool if you are doing a daily Bible reading program or just reading the Bible. By reading each sermon before or during your reading of the particular book you are in the BIble, that book comes alive with better understanding and comprehension.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Addition to Your Library 3 Nov. 2010
By Aaron Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mark Dever has compiled a collection of sermons for each book of the New Testament. What this provides is a very readable, easily understood summary of each book, as well a concise treatment of the overall message of the New Testament.

What is most helpful is the fact that sound, biblical theology is maintained throughout. When studying a passage of scripture, it is easy to get caught up in a verse or two and miss the "forest for the trees." This book is helpful in placing a passage in a theological context.

This is an excellent resource to keep on hand. When studying from a particular book of the New Testament, Dever provides a great place to start.

I highly recommend this for any Christian's bookshelf; clergy or laity. Further, I recommend owning the Old Testament volume as well.
