Needed Background Dec 2 2007
By Harry W. Moore - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The moral understanding of the Greek and Roman world has a real application in our time. It is not that we should emulate their beliefs, it is that we need to understand their beliefs. Much of the New Testament is written to Greek and Roman people. When Paul, or others, use generic words such as indecent, unclean, immoral, or such, most people think of the meaning of the word in today's culture. Until we truly begin to understand the culture, especially the moral culture, of the first century; we cannot begin to understand the message as it would have been understood in that cultural setting. The book, The Sleep of Reason" provides this understanding. This is a well written and thought provoking book.
