A well-rounded compilation  Mar 10, 2004
Compiled and edited by J. Paul Samley (Professor Emeritus of New Testament and Christian Origins, Boston University), Paul In The Greco-Roman World: A Handbook is an impressively erudite, scholarly, 704-page anthology of in-depth studies by learned academicians examining the apostle Paul within the context of the Greco-Roman world in which he lived. Examining social conventions of Paul's world, as well as literary and rhetorical topics, insight on how Paul's cultural background affected his famous letters, relevant social practices and cultural mores, and so much more, Paul In The Greco-Roman World is a well-rounded compilation which is very highly recommended for Christian Religious History studies reading lists and reference collections.
