520    This beautifully designed, full-color textbook introduces 
       the Roman background of the New Testament by immersing 
       students in the life and culture of the thriving first-
       century towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, which act as 
       showpieces of the world into which the early Christian 
       movement was spreading. Bruce Longenecker, a leading 
       scholar of the ancient world of the New Testament, 
       discusses first-century artifacts in relation to the life 
       stories of people from the Roman world. The book includes 
       discussion questions, maps, and 175 color photographs.|c--
