The Letters to the Seven Churches of Asia in Their Local Setting
Colin J. Hemer With a new foreword by David E. Aune
From The Publisher:
This modern classic by Colin Hemer explores the seven letters in the book of Revelation against the historical background of the churches to which they were addressed. Based on literary, epigraphical, and archaeological sources and informed by Hemer’s firsthand knowledge of the biblical sites, this superb study presents in the clearest way possible a picture of the New Testament world in the later part of the first century and its significance for broader questions of church history.
This is an excellent work, indeed the best on the relevant historical background of the seven letters of Revelation.
—G. K. Beale in Trinity Journal
This book is one of the best contributions ever published on the letters of Revelation.
—Gerhard Meier in Theologische Literaturzeitung
