Nicholas King SJ New Testament Study Guides

An outstanding feature of Nicholas King’s New Testament translation is the explanatory notes and commentary interwoven with the New Testament chapters, exploring the personalities, background, teaching, language, devices, style and syntax of the writers. They help give the reader the feel of the texts, explain trickier passages and highlight themes of special significance. Here the individual Gospels are published separately for ease of use in groups or for personal study.
