About the Book:
Leading New Testament scholar Warren Carter has a record of providing student-friendly texts. This introduction offers a “big picture” focus and is logically and memorably organized around seven events, which Carter uses as launching pads to discuss larger cultural dynamics and sociohistorical realities that were in some way significant for followers of Jesus and the New Testament. Photos and maps are included.
“Brilliantly conceived and accessibly written. Carter’s seven events serve as doors through which to enter into and explore the cultural complexities of the early church. This book will be an excellent secondary text for courses on New Testament introduction, but it should also find its way into the hands of any reader interested in the sociocultural context of early Christianity.” -David A. deSilva
