Empire in the New Testament
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Empire in the New Testament is a thought-provoking exploration into the current state of research for this important topic. Porter and Westfall gather together a diverse representation of methods and positions with regard to understanding the relationship of empire to the New Testament. This is an indispensible volume for those studying the content and context of the New Testament. It provides new interpretive insights that will enlighten both the general reader and the university student."
--J. Brian Tucker

"Not only has the question of empire earned increasing attention in biblical studies, it poses a demanding challenge for Christians in North America and Europe. Each of these essays presents a significant contribution to the biblical studies conversation as well as food for thought for contemporary believers. This book is suitable for introductory and elective Bible courses, for pastors and interest laypersons, and for a variety of church settings.

"These essays further establish the relevance of 'empire-critical' interpretations of the New Testament, providing new insights and pointing toward the possibility of a coherent New Testament biblical theology explicitly engaged with empire."
