    1. Wow, an outstanding book. I have read many dry Bible commentaries for my Seminary papers. This is not one of them. It is fairly short, but gives interesting pertinent background information for each chapter of the New Testament starting with the book of Acts. Can't recommend it enough!


    2. The book of Acts, the Pauline Epistles, I and 2 Peter, Hebrews, James, Jude, and Revelation form the majority of the New Testament books of the Bible. Thus, it is vital to understand what these books are saying, their context, who the authors of these books are, why these books were written and to whom, as well as a number of other vital background information necessary to properly interpret what God is saying to His people in these books. A quality New Testament Commentary can oven serve the ne [...]


    3. As a follow-up volume to the highly acclaimed and widely used Jesus and the Gospels: An Introduction and Survey, Craig Blomberg directs his efforts towards the remainder of the New Testament canon. From Pentecost to Patmos: An Introduction to Acts through Revelation is divided into three major sections with various divisions therein. Section one, The Acts of the Apostles, begins with some of the standard introductory material, including authorship, date, audience, purpose, genre, etc. Following [...]


    4. Craig Blomberg followed up his highly successful volume on the Gospels with this title that covers the rest of the New Testament. While it might not be as good as his earlier volume as the Gospels are clearly his specialty, this Introduction is still one I found to be quite an asset.He presents his material in the typical style taking one NT book at a time. The length of his chapters varies in a fashion corresponding to the length and importance of the NT book discussed. He used good judgment an [...]


    5. I just completed this book as part of a Bible Institute Series at my church and Dr. Blomberg was our instructor. The book is exceptional and the Chapter on Revelation I thought was especially good. I told him that as far as I'm concerned it is his Magnum Opus. He got a great laugh from that remark. After all this is only the second of his many books on the New Testament that I've read so I understand his amusement. Nevertheless, his thorough treatment of Revelation is the first I've ever underst [...]


    6. Blomberg gives an overview of the New Testament from Acts to Revelation (Pentecost to Patmos). The book is laid out to mirror the structure of each book. The strength of this book is Blomberg's systematic and thorough treatment of the second half of the New Testament. The book manages to treat the various perspectives on dating and authorship fairly while still feeling confident to take a side. The book is best used in serious study alongside the New Testament text; it does not hold much interes [...]


    7. This book is helpful in parts, but not recommended for those who have not read a solid introduction to the New Testament before. Blomberg is a clear writer and chapters are easy to read, however I disagree with several of his conclusions and interpretations. It may be better to start with The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown: An Introduction to the New Testament by Andreas J. Köstenberger, Leonard Scott Kellum, Charles Leland Quarles, Charles L. Quarles or An Introduction to the New Testament b [...]


    8. This companion piece to Blomberg’s Jesus and the Gospels surveys the remaining books of the New Testament. While Blomberg does give historical information, he spends the majority of time commenting on the text of Scripture itself, referencing his way through the New Testament canon. Although introductory in nature, Blomberg still manages to achieve a healthy level of depth and asks questions which prompt further study. The end result is a helpful resource for New Testament studies.


    9. For those who like the Christian History this is a good tool, It's amazing the way that the author explain the context and the social characteristics in the New testament times, I strongly recommend this book in English its name is From Pentecosts to Patmos enjoy it


    10. Good overview of the New Testament from Acts to Revelation by one of my fav professors at Denver Seminary Dr. Blomberg (a scholar and a gentleman). It helps one to think like a 1st century Christian. It is a bit heady but his theology and insights are totally worth it.


    11. Great commentary. I don't agree all the time with Blomberg, but found myself agreeing much more than not. As far as an introduction to N.T. (minus the gospels) he does a fine job.
