Having long served as a standard introduction to the world of the early
church, Everett Fergusons Backgrounds of Early Christianity has been
expanded and updated in this third edition. The book explores and
unpacks the Roman, Greek, and Jewish political, social, religious, and
philosophical backgrounds necessary for a good historical understanding
of the New Testament and the early church. New to this edition are
revisions of Fergusons original material, updated bibliographies, and
fresh discussions of first-century social life, of Gnosticism, and of
the Dead Sea Scrolls and other Jewish literature.
