The Book of Acts in its Graeco-Roman Setting
Edited by David W J Gill and Conrad Gempf
From The Publisher:
The Book of Acts in Its Graeco-Roman Setting, the second volume in this series, describes the geographical, social, and cultural milieus of the Roman Empire that form the backdrop for the Book of Acts. Eight chapters provide a comprehensive overview of the provinces and regions within which the early church fought for a foothold. Seven chapters offer thorough analyses of key social and cultural issues in the eastern provinces of the Roman Empire, including such topics as travel and maritime transport, the Roman roads of Asia, food shortages, Roman religion, urban elites, and the house churches in which the first Christian communities met.
