Review quote

"Tired of traditional descriptions of Paul? Then spend some time with Paul and Empire. Paul, you'll find, is not just the theologian you knew, but a political and religious activist, too... Paul and Empire provides a handy introduction to the work of some of the most respected scholars in Roman and New Testament studies. Further, Horsley's concise, readable introductions pull together these many threads while highlighting the significance of each." Steven Friesen, reviewing for Biblical Archaeology Review, May/June 1999--Sanford Lakoff "Biblical Archaeology Review "
