    One thought on “Seven Events That Shaped the New Testament World”

    1. This book is written for a younger, uninformed audience The style is very informal, which I enjoyed at first, but by the end began to grate on me I appreciated much of the discussion, especially the way it tied historical events to the way people thought in NT times What I did not appreciate was the way the author presented his own views as the only viable ones, especially on hotly debated issues such as the authorship and dating of NT books There were other quirks and annoyances as well For exa [...]

    2. High level and easy to read A good starting point If I have one complaint it s that the author tends to draw conclusions about related topics without fully explaining all the viewpoints, but those topics are not the point of this book I see this book as a solid place to begin, but a student of theology will likely come away with many questions requiring further research This could mean, however, that the book has served the exact purpose the author intended.

    3. Excellent work Carter does a wonderful job working through all of the information to give us a precise account of the events.

    4. This book was a mixed bag, but largely a promising book, with special relevance to anyone particularly undergraduates seeking a good introduction to the cultural setting of the New Testament As opposed to looking specifically at ideas or people, Carter takes the novel approach of examining the New Testament culture through the lens of 7 significant events that shaped the culture This approach is worthwhile because it grounds the New Testament in historical realities and provides necessary backgr [...]

    7. I greatly appreciated Carter s book its topics fall within my areas of expertise, teaching, and interests Carter s perspective or regimen is clearly history of religions with a hermeneutical tuning fork of empire the book ever resonates with the dynamics of power That s an important perspective on a big picture that scholars to students will find beneficial For the initiate, however, Seven Events That Shaped the New Testament World does itself subtly SHAPE firm conclusions for the reader on matt [...]

    8. A quick read with details on the Henry family through 1941 Knowing the historical events leading to the war encouraged we to be actively seeking the next page It is a very realistic story of how the family copes and how reality of life exists Well onto War and Rememberance.

    9. Very interesting book It explores how events from the battles of Alexander The Great to creation of New Testament canon shaped the early church.
