A Week in the Life of Corinth Giveaway!

We're giving away FIVE copies of Ben Witherington's recent book, A Week in the Life of Corinth.


Follow a fictitious man named Nicanor through an eventful week of business dealings and conflict in first-century Corinth. In his portrayal of life in the famous Biblical city, Ben Witherington presents an unforgettable introduction to life in a major center of the New Testament world.

Tim Challies recently called this book, "quite a useful little volume." And Nijay Gupta says, "If I ever teach a course on 1 Corinthians, I will probably add this into the textbook mix because it is short, entertaining, and very, very interesting!"

Check out our website for more information and reviews from our Goodreads readers.
