The Roman Empire and the New Testament: An Essential Guide
by Warren Carter

Ever wonder exactly how powerful Rome's hold was over those who lived during the ministry of Jesus and the founding of the early churches? This book study will help participants see how social structures and daily practices in the Roman world illumine so much of the content of the New Testament message. Anyone who wishes to understand the New Testament texts must become familiar with the political, economic, societal, cultural, and religious aspects of Roman rule.

Participants are asked to purchase their books from their favorite seller. A reading guide will be provided to participants each week.
