Paul's writings are laced with vivid images from the bustling New Testament world. To understand these metaphors, David J Williams delves into that Greco-Roman world and uses ancient sources to explore a wide variety of topics such as architecture, law, commerce, health care, and education.Paul's metaphors are examined in the light of this background information and are restored to their original vitality. Well-known metaphors and lesser-known metaphors come to life for the modern reader through Williams' careful exposition.(Publisher)
