The Not-Very-Persecuted Church
Paul at the Intersection of Church and Culture
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Laura Hunt's book, The Not-Very-Persecuted Church, is a great overview of the theological and societal issues facing the Corinthian church. Not only does she identify the challenges that threaten the unity of the Corinthian church, she compares and contrasts those challenges to the contemporary church in America. If you want an excellent analysis of the cultural and societal factors that can shape a church, this is the book for you."

"In this fascinating study, Laura Hunt reads 1 Corinthians mindful of how people and groups form their sense of individual and group identity, and demonstrates the common default settings for groups whose social and cultural contexts offer little or no resistance. In so doing, she offers a reading of 1 Corinthians that can speak powerfully to our own twenty-first-century, not-very-persecuted churches."
