Item Description...
In many places the New Testament reflects the Roman Empire's values of social stability, but at the same time, other passages make strong statements that seem to be against the family. What was the family like for the first Christians? How did they combine their family values and their new faith? When there were conflicts between family and faith, how did early Christians make choices between them? Osiek and Balch provide solid scholarship on these issues, informed by archaeological work and illustrated by figures and photographs.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ken's review  Sep 25, 2007
Way too much information on Rome. I was looking for more information on the life in Palistine during the time of Christ. This book does go into some aspects of the life in Palistine, but it is heavely weighted with Roman life. Not bad as books during this period go, but not what I expected.
Early Christian Hearth and Home  May 26, 1999
This book, one of a number of excellent titles from the Religion, Culture, and Family Project of the University of Chicago Divinity School, takes the reader behind the frequent rhetoric concerning the biblical family to the reality of family life in early Christian communities. Setting the New Testament teachings on the family within the social and cultural context of the Greco-Roman world, it moves through an analysis of Greek and Roman household architecture to an analysis of family life. The open architecture of ancient Christian houses, unlike modern houses, had large entryways which invited anyone who passed by into their spacious and semi-public courtyards. Balch and Osiek's work shows how the architectural patterns of Greek and Roman homes formed and influenced relationships in early Christian house churches and how worship in these house churches influenced Christian families. For example, with respect to gender relations, it shows that early Christian women enjoyed wider ranges of freedom and leadership and that early Christian men learned to think of themselves as servants. This outstanding piece of scholarship shed new light on the early Christian household.
