Dr. Shade begins with the record of the Gospels. The life and labors of Jesus are thoroughly examined. His ministry of redemption is given proper emphasis. The founding and ministry of the First Century Church is brought into focus, and the response to the Great Commission Mandate is surveyed from the book of Acts. The conversion of Saul, his subsequent missionary journeys, and the founding of Christian churches in Asia and Europe are given places of importance in the panorama of New Testament History.
