The Archivists' New Testament : An Archival Arrangement of the Documents of the New Testament

Description

The Archivists' New Testament (KJV) is a new arrangement of the New Testament documents according to archival principles. Jeanette White Ford, former archivist with the National Archives, Southwest Branch, has arranged the ancient books into a logical, usable order. By attributing each of the 27 books to one of four early Christian church leaders, Ford divides the New Testament into four sections: (1) the documents of Peter's mission team; (2) the documents of James' team; (3) the documents of Paul's mission team; and (4) the documents of John and his helpers. Within these sections, the books are placed by literary type, then by date whenever possible. "This is not a chronological arrangement," Ford points out. "Instead, this sequencing seeks to place each book into its logical space within the whole. I hope this volume will give new insights to students and scholars of the Bible." Ford is the author of Archival Principles and Practice, McFarland, 1990, and Archives for Churches, Wipf and Stock, 1995.
