Book Recommendation: Jeffers' The Greco-Roman World of the New Testament Era
One of the main problems I have in understanding the New Testament is that I don't know the historical context for these writings very well. So, I was happy to read James S. Jeffers' The Greco-Roman World of the New Testament Era: Exploring the Back of Early Christianity. Jeffers' book is an easy read that covers a variety of topics in the NT era such as: citizenship, slavery, views of life and death, and religion.
I found this book to be extremely helpful and I would recommend this to anyone, who is like me not too familiar, with the NT era.
