From the Publisher
His main concern is to provide information about aspects of the 1st-century eastern Mediterranean cultural world in which the authors of the writings and their original recipients lived.
New Testament Abstracts
With his customary insight and engaging style, John Pilch has produced another impressive volume that elucidates the cultural world of the Bible. As in his previous books, which focus on the gospels, this one skillfully connects the first century Mediterranean contexts of the second reading with those of contemporary readers. Another indispensable aid to preachers.
Barbara E. Reid, OP, Professor of New Testament Studies, Catholic Theological Union
A good book for preachers.
Pilch's book certainly gives solid scholarship on the cultural, historical, and literary settings for the second readings, and for this reason will serve as a useful reference for preachers.
