The New Testament Made Harder

So much of modern life is geared to finding faster and easier ways to do the same old things. The MADE HARDER series is proof that making things easier does not always make them better. In these books, Latter-day Saint philosopher James E. Faulconer raises many more questions than he answers. And that is precisely the point. The New Testament Made Harder suggests that scripture study is only as good as the questions we bring to the endeavor. While many scriptural guides provide useful chapter synopses, timelines, memorizable bullet-points, or shortcuts, this book consists almost entirely of challenging questions (with occasional commentary for clarity’s sake) because, in Faulconer’s experience, questions themselves are the key to reflective and deep scripture study. This book is intended to make reading harder—and therefore fresher—by priming your pondering pump with insightful study questions.

The New Testament Made Harder is the perfect tool to improve personal and family scripture study, sacrament meeting talks, or Sunday School lessons. Read a free sample chapter here.
