The Book of Acts in Its First Century Setting (5 vols.) series explains the culture and context surrounding the New Testament’s history of how the gospel began its journey to all nations. Volume 1 examines Luke’s place as a legitimate Hellenistic historian, as well as the tropes and schemes of historical literature of the time. In volume 3 Brian Rapske provides an often-overlooked perspective of Paul as Roman prisoner, exploring the custodial system of the Graeco-Roman world along with Paul’ persona and mission. Other volumes draw on expert contributions from archaeologists, anthropologists, and historians to recreate the world the church was born into.
