The Corinth Letters by Ben Chenoweth
Ben Chenoweth, The Corinth Letters (Exegetical Histories) (Volume 2), MST Press, 2015.
In 55 AD, Linus, a pottery worker of the house of Chloe, is sent by his mistress with a secret message to Paul, the founder of the church in Corinth. The letter that Paul sends in response, however, does not have the desired effect, involving Linus in some nasty church politics. Something more than a letter from Paul will be needed, if the church in Corinth is going to survive. In 2013 AD, Matt, a young Australian on holiday in Greece, meets Emily, a beautiful young American archaeologist. In an effort to impress her he decides to fake Paul’s ‘previous’ letter to the Corinthians. However, things do not work out quite as he planned and their relationship seems to be over before it even begins. Become immersed in the historical context of 1 and 2 Corinthians in this exciting sequel to The Ephesus Scroll.
“creatively conceived… illuminating and engaging… hard to put down”
