Actually, 3 1/2 would be better.

This book of charts is part of a series covering the Old Testament, the New Testament, Church History, Christian Doctrine, Philosophy, etc.

Of the several that I have, I would rate this as one of the better titles. Dr. House, while obviously an evangelical, bordering on being a fundamentalist, is sound and even-handed when dealing with various differences in timetables, chronologies, opinions, etc. about New Testament history and doctrine.

There is a little big of Protestant "digging" against Catholic understandings of New Testament doctrines etc., but nothing too objectionable.

This would be a good book for the "informed layman" or for a church library. In fact, it's a good introduction to the New Testament for adult Christian education.

But it is not without its flaws, and that needs to be realized in advance by clergy of differing backgrounds.
