This volume contains 56 essays which present cultural reflections on the Gospel reading assigned for each Sunday in Cycle C of the Roman Lectionary. Each essay highlights aspects of the first-century, Mediterranean world in which Jesus lived, and suggests a cross-cultural comparison with contemporary Western culture. With this background information, readers can make more fitting applications of the Scripture to modern life situations. John Pilch is the author of the "Colleville Bible Commentary" and the leaflet "Selecting a Bible Translation".
." . . an invaluable resource for preachers, and very interesting for anyone seeking deeper insight into the gospel.AIM
