In this succinct yet readable narrative, Witherington carries the reader from the intertestamental Maccabean wars to the reign of Domitian and the exile of John, focusing especially upon the life of Christ. Witherington closely explores the geographical, political, social, and religious influences that shaped the leaders and social movements of the day. The inferiority complex of Alexander the Great and the stories of "Little Boots" and Nero are a few examples of such case studies.
Dr. Ben Witherington III (Ph.D., University of Durham)is professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary. He is the author of over twenty books, including The Jesus Quest: The Third Search for the Jew of Nazareth.

Bret Z.5 Stars Out Of 5August 22, 2009Bret Z.A worthy briefing on what the book it set out to do, ''explores the geographical, political, social, and religious influences that shaped the leaders and social movements of the day.'' It is a fun book to read for me and very informative too.
Buddy Boone5 Stars Out Of 5March 3, 2004Buddy BooneTalk about a wide window into the world of the New Testament! Ben Witherington has written an amazingly readable yet thorough narrative account of New Testament history. I cannot express just how helpful it has been to me in my pursuit of a better understanding of the Scriptures. From the inter-testamental Maccabean wars to the reign of Domitian and the exile of John, Witherington covers the period in a refreshingly readable prose that makes it hard to put down. Illustrations, sidebars, Closer Look sections, maps, and charts abound and greatly augment the cogency of each section. This is foundational "stuff" in understanding the New Testament and this book is the finest of its genre.
