Review:

There is currently a great deal of debate about the ways in which the New Testament writers responded to the Roman Empire. To understand and assess the debate it is vital for students (and scholars!) to encounter at first hand the texts and artefacts that inform us about that imperial context. With extensive quotation of primary sources and well-informed commentary and explanation, Mark Reasoner has provided an excellent sourcebook to enable us to do just that. This is a very welcome resource. --David G. Horrell, University of Exeter

This book is a long-needed and essential tool for scholars, teachers, and students who explore the rise of Christianity from the grandeur that was Rome. A helpful introduction explains the contested place of Roman Imperial sources in New Testament scholarship and argues persuasively that careful attention to sources such as these is an important, too often neglected, stimulus for assessing ways in which the New Testament includes or omits Rome in its multiple frames of reference. The book is an especially welcome enhancement of the Roman sources collected in more general New Testament backgrounds anthologies and will be as useful in the classroom as in the study. --Alexandra Brown, Washington and Lee University
