How many Gospels are there?
Most people would answer, “Four.” But is that the correct answer? Beyond the Obvious demonstrates that what may seem obvious is, upon reflection, a doorway to exploring some of the most important questions about the New Testament, the early church, and Christianity by examining what might otherwise be overlooked. The book’s unique essay format allows for exploration of seven crucial observations about the New Testament—such as “The New Testament is a library” or “Paul wrote first”—across multiple texts, bundling together information often analyzed in distinct parts. With thoughtful reflection questions and suggested reading lists, Beyond the Obvious: Doorways to Understanding the New Testament informs continued discussion and invites critical, innovative thinking.
