Overview
In this book, renowned scholar Jerome Murphy-O'Connor does for Ephesus what he did for Corinth in his award-winning St. Paul's Corinth. He combs the works of 26 ancient authors for information about ancient Ephesus, from its beginnings to the end of the biblical era. Readers can now picture for themselves this second of the two major centers of Paul's missionary work, with its houses, shops , monuments, and above all the world-renowned temple of Artemis. After presenting the textual and archaeological evidence, the author leads the reader on a walk through Ephesus and describes the history of Paul's years in the city. Although Ephesus has been a ruin for many hundreds of years, readers of this book will find themselves transported back to the days of its flourishing.

Scholarly yet Readable: Ephesus as Paul knew it  May 27, 2008
St. Paul's Ephesus: Texts and Archaeology

I received this book about 2 weeks before arriving in Kusadasi (Turkey) from where I took a bus to the ancient town of Ephesus. The author had prepared me well. He explains the significance of the temple of Artemis and how Paul would react to it compared to the Temple in Jerusalem. The author explains how the sea has retreated from the ancient city of Ephesus and how the resulting swamp caused people to leave the area for centuries. This is one of the reasons that the city is so well preserved.

In part 2 of the volume the author explains Paul's relationship to the Galatians, Philippians and others as he wrote from prison in Ephesus. Not only does the author shed light on Ephesus, but he also illuminates the Biblical passages connected with Ephesus. Scholarly, yet readable; informative and enjoyable. That pretty much sums it up.
