Product Description

Contemporary biblical interpretation has narrowed the gap between modern reader and ancient author---but chiefly regarding individual events and ideas. This commentary mines cultural anthropology, macro-sociology, and social psychology to elucidate the values, conflicts, and mores of ancient Mediterranean culture. Through detailed textual notes and "reading scenarios," it brings life and light to the synoptic texts. 448 pages, softcover from Fortress.
