I believe this is an absolute must for anyone wanting to study the New Testament with a critical eye. The lectures are coherent and wonderfully outlined. I have enjoyed each one immensely. The lecturer is so well prepared and is easy to listen to and to learn from. I would highly recommend these lectures.
