In A Week in the Life of Corinth premier New Testament scholar Ben Witherington, who also has knack for storytelling, attempts to re-enchant our reading of Paul and understanding of Corinth in this imaginative but historicall accurate reconstruction of the ancient cosmopolitan city.
Following a fictitious Corinthian man named Nicanor through an eventful week of business dealings and conflict, you will encounter life at the various social levels of Roman society--eventually meeting Paul himself and gaining entrance into the Christian community there.
The result is an unforgettable introduction to life in a urban center at the center of cultural life in the New Testament world. Numerous full-page "Closer Look" outtake boxes expand on a variety of aspects dealing with life and culture as we encounter them in the narrative.
