In just a few weeks, we will have copies of The New Testament in Antiquity in our warehouse. Engaging, academically robust, richly illustrated, and relevant to the modern student, it carefully develops how Jewish and Hellenistic cultures formed the essential environment in which the New Testament authors wrote their books and letters. I have advance copies in my office; trust me, it is a thing of beauty. Each page is a work of art with carefully-selected photos and illustrations (they're not just window-dressing). Does anyone know the coin on the cover and its history?
At SBL in Boston we had a chance to sit down with all the authors (Gary Burge, Lynn Cohick, and Gene Green). Enjoy the video. --Jesse
