Transported two thousand years into the past, readers are introduced to Antipas, a Roman civic leader who has encountered the writings of the biblical author Luke. Luke's writings spark Antipas's interest, and a correspondence transpires between them. As the two delve deeply into each other's lives, Antipas begins to see things in fresh ways, causing him to rethink the values upon which his life had been founded. In due course, a gladiatorial contest in Pergamum forces difficult decisions on both the Christians in that city and on Antipas himself.

Slightly Intriguing with a Great Ending
I love everything that Longenecker and Witherington 3rd put out, but this was informative, and a little slow. It was developed using a creative approach, but nobody understood it except myself. Great for a glimpse into the enigmatic culture of the Roman/Greek mindset. Would it help with explaining our Gospel to an equally ignorant modern audience? Maybe.
