About this title


Investigate the challenges, threats, and opportunities experienced by the early church

Volume two of The First Urban Churches focuses on the urban context of Christian churches in first-century Roman Corinth. An investigation of the material evidence of Corinth helps readers today understand properly the challenges, threats, and opportunities that the early Corinthian believers faced in the city. The essays demonstrate decisively the difference that such an approach makes in grappling with the meaning and context of the Corinthian epistles in the New Testament.


  • Analysis of urban evidence of the inscriptions, papyri, archaeological remains, coins, and iconography
  • Proposed reeconstructions of the past and its social, religious and political significance
  • A nuanced, informed portrait of ancient urban life in Corinth
