The author of this book offers another fine introduction to New Testament studies. The New Testament writings are the result of lively interaction between the early church writers and their world. Roetzel discusses these first-century writers and outlines the major realities they faced as they shaped the New Testament record: political history, forms of religious expression, institutions, scriptural interpretation, and the mythic significance of evil.
