Publisher's Summary

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

Any additional comments?

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.

Talk about taking a time machine back to the times of the early church! I actually felt like i was right there. The language used is so descriptive and flows so well that the imagination just follows. It gave me a clear and accurate idea of what life may have been like for early christians in and around roam after Jesus was killed and the gospels were being written. A good read historically, spiritually and academically as a lot of the accounts echo what the text books say.
