What did Rome represent to the earliest followers of Christ? Six biblical scholars^pick up on ways in which this question ought to be answered. Essays include:
  • The state they were in: Luke's view of the Roman Empire / Steve Walton
  • Luke's story of Paul's reception in Rome / Conrad Gempf
  • Roman law and society in Romans 12-15 / Bruce Winter
  • Jew and Greek, slave and free, male and female: Paul's theology of ethnic, social and gender inclusiveness in Romans 16 / Andrew D. Clarke
  • God's sovereignty over Roman authorities: A theme in Philippians / Peter Oakes
  • Disturbing trajectories: 1 Clement, the Shepherd of Hermas and the development of early Roman Christianity / Andrew Gregory.
-Editorial Review.

- Publisher Rome both dominated the shape of first century life and became a place of Christian activity. It was an empire in which Christians lived, an authority under which they might suffer and a culture that shaped life in society. Yet Rome was also the location of a church. It was the church to which Paul wrote, and the place to which he was taken at the end of his ministry in the book of Acts.
