In the Mail: @Fortresspress Edition

9780800699116.jpgbI received in the mail yesterday a review copy of Mark Reasoner’s Roman Imperial Texts: A Sourcebook, courtesy of Fortress Press. This fascinating book is a “sourcebook of Roman texts for readers of the New Testament.” Further, “it is a supplement to one’s reading of the New Testament, a tool to prompt consideration of how its texts relate to the Roman Empire and how the Christianities that grew out of communities behind those texts came to relate to the state” (Reasoner, 1). This looks to be an excellent supplementary text for a NT survey course. I look forward to its contents.
