Product Description

What was it like ot be an ordinary Christian in the beginning decades of the Roman Empire? In this absorbing and authoritative book, Meeks analyzes the earliest extant documents of Christianity--the letters of Paul--to describe the tensions and the texture of life of the first urban Christians. Feel like stepping out of our era into the social world of the apostle Paul? Meeks is the authority to do it with! With a fresh angle, he analyzes the earliest extant documents of Christianity, the letters of Paul, to unravel information of an era and a people we can realistically relate to. Unafraid to tread on heavily debated grounds---his absorbing study relays lucid information on both accepted and controversial early Christian social and religious practices. Meeks vividly evokes the thrilling reality of the textures, tensions and heart of first-century social life, enabling you to indirectly meet those citizens and discover what it was like to be an early Christian!
