About-

Exploiting the discoveries that he draws on so expertly in his 'Light from the Ancient East', Deissmann's intent here is to understand Paul in his historical and geographical setting. While not a sociological study according to contemporary standards, Deissmann's emphasis is clearly on people and their daily lives. His emphasis is on Paul as a social being, not as a theologian.
