    The subtitle of this bookUnlocking New Testament Culturesays it all. As a seminary student, I have found HPKP to be a great resource, not only for writing papers, but for deepening my own understanding of Scripture. The book covers four aspects/concepts prevalent in first century culture, devoting two chapters to each one. As deSilva unpacks these concepts and shows how the gospels and epistles are steeped in them, the New Testament comes alive in a whole new way. Understanding the ancient concepts of patronage and reciprocity lays a great foundation for understanding the gospel itself. Nothing could be more fundamental. This book has helped me enter into the world of the apostles and my faith has increased as a result. It is well-written, easy to read, and well worth every penny.

    This is an outstanding book that offers great insight into New Testament life as it relates to the Bible. At points you can almost picture life as it was lived day by day. How did the first century person think? In what way did Christianity confront both the Greek and Roman culture? Why and how did the church at Corinth differ from the one Ephesus? I recommend this book to anyone who will listen!
