In literary works, endings are critical; an authorís conclusion to a story or an argument is intended to shape our understanding of the whole. In this engaging and deceptively simple study, a companion volume to her much-praised Beginnings, Morna D. Hooker explores the final pages of each of the four Gospels and the book of Acts, and attempts to uncover the specific messages that the Evangelists hoped to convey to their readers.

Nearly all of the Old Testament books have forward-looking conclusions. What, then, is the significance of the way in which these New Testament documents end?
