Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1483-1484 Gary Burge – A Week in the Life of a Roman Centurion

A Week in the Life of a Roman Centurion book cover This is another fictional account of life in the first century, the time of Jesus, by a New Testament scholar. In order to make biblical research accessible to the average person, books like this engage the imagination and take us back to the same period that we read about in the gospels.

It’s a short book, packed with a lot of biblical information in a very accessible format. I enjoyed reading it and I enjoyed my conversation with Gary Burge, giving the background of the project and some of the perspectives that he included in the book.

About three years ago we interviewed Ben Witherington about his book, A Week in the Life of Corinth.

We are giving away our review copy of this book. If you would like the opportunity to receive this book, you can get details by listening to program #1484.
