IVP Academic Jesus Is Lord, Caesar Is Not: Evaluating Empire in New Testament Studies

Under the experienced direction of Scot McKnight and Jospeph Modica, respected biblical scholars have come together to investigate an increasingly popular approach to New Testament scholarship of interpreting the text through the lens of Empire.

The contributors praise recent insights into the New Testament's expose of Roman statecraft, ideology and Emperor worship. Yet they conclude that the rhetoric of anti-imperialism is often given too much sway. The result of this collaboration is a groun breaking yet accessible critical evaluation of empire criticism.
