A worthy briefing on what the book it set out to do, ''explores the geographical, political, social, and religious influences that shaped the leaders and social movements of the day.'' It is a fun book to read for me and very informative too.

Talk about a wide window into the world of the New Testament! Ben Witherington has written an amazingly readable yet thorough narrative account of New Testament history. I cannot express just how helpful it has been to me in my pursuit of a better understanding of the Scriptures. From the inter-testamental Maccabean wars to the reign of Domitian and the exile of John, Witherington covers the period in a refreshingly readable prose that makes it hard to put down. Illustrations, sidebars, Closer Look sections, maps, and charts abound and greatly augment the cogency of each section. This is foundational "stuff" in understanding the New Testament and this book is the finest of its genre.
