After Paul Left Corinth : The Influence of Secular Ethics and Social Change
Bruce W. Winter
From The Publisher:
After Paul Left Corinth gathers for the first time all the relevant extant material from literary, nonliterary, and archaeological sources on what life was like in the first-century Roman colony of Corinth. Using this evidence, Bruce Winter not only opens a fascinating vista on day-to-day living in the Graeco-Roman world but, more importantly, helps us understand what happened to the Christian community after Paul left Corinth. As Winter shows, the origin of many of the problems Paul dealt with in 1 Corinthians can be traced to culturally determined responses to aspects of life in Corinth.
Winter describes his goal as follows: “to bring to life something of the first-century social and religious context of Corinth and help illuminate the text of 1 Corinthians for the reader” (p.xii). He meets his goal; pastors and students will find this immensely illuminating.
