Reading and understanding the New Testament are essential to life transformation through Jesus. But twenty-seven books, nine authors, various audiences, and cultural contexts make it intimidating for new believers and mature Christians alike.
When he came to Christ at age seventeen, Robert Hedenstrom dove into reading his Bible but struggled with foreign concepts like justification, righteousness, and propitiation. He quickly lost interest.
Having since earned his master’s in divinity, Hedenstrom now helps others avoid the confusion and frustration that waylaid his own journey with the Savior. Everlasting Kingdom: Faith, Hope, and Love in Christ from the Gospels to Revelation delivers a comprehensive and straightforward synopsis of the New Testament designed to illuminate the Spirit-inspired Word of God and encourage deeper study of the Scriptures. Key features include:
A brief synopsis of the Old Testament
An overview of each New Testament book
Clear and understandable commentary
Insight into historical and cultural contexts
Everlasting Kingdom draws on scholarly insights—but uses clear language—to touch and inspire searching hearts. Readers at any stage in their walk with Christ will recognize the Savior’s love and experience the gospel’s transformation effect.
