Product description

In this new volume, renowned scholar Jerome Murphy-O'Connor does for Ephesus what he did for Corinth in his award-winning "St. Paul's Corinth. "He combs the works of twenty-six ancient authors for information about ancient Ephesus, from its beginnings to the end of the biblical era. Readers can now picture for themselves this second of the two major centers of Paul's missionary work, with its houses, shops, and monuments, and above al the world-renowned temple of Artemis. After presenting the textual and archaeological evidence, Murphy-O'Connor leads the reader on a walk through St. Paul's Ephesus and describes the history of Paul's years in the city. Although Ephesus has been a ruin for many hundreds of years, readers of this book will find themselves transported back to the days of its flourishing."Jerome Murphy-O'Connor, OP, has been a professor of New Testament at the Ecole Biblique of Jerusalem since1967. He has lectured throughout the world and is the author of numerous books, including the popular Oxford Press archaeological guidebook "The Holy Land; "and "Pal the Letter-Writer, St. Paul's Corinth, and Jesus "and "Pal: Parallel Lives, " al published by Liturgical Press."
