A fresh look at early urban churches

This collection of essays examines the urban context of early Christian churches in the first-century Roman world. A city-by-city investigation of the early churches in the New Testament clarifies the challenges, threats, and opportunities that urban living provided for early Christians. Readers will come away with a better understanding of how scholars assemble an accurate picture of the cities in which the first Christians flourished.

Features:

  • Analysis of urban evidence of the inscriptions, papyri, archaeological remains, coins, and iconography
  • Discussion of how to use different types of evidence responsibly
  • Outline of what constitutes proper methodological use for establishing a nuanced, informed portrait of ancient urban life
