Beschreibung

Through exegetical precision and insightful application, Dr Prince Conteh's book answers the old lingering question: In the context of Acts 17, what does the word deisidaimon ( religious ) in verse 22 actually mean? The interpretation of the word deisidaimon ( religious ), has provoked varying opinions. What did Paul actually mean when he referred to the Athenians as being very religious? Does this seemingly compliment imply that Paul was endorsing the Athenians as worshipers of the one true God? Dr Conteh's work is both technical and yet relevant and accessible to all readers (lay or expert)and to society at large. Prince explores the implications his study has for the culture of late antiquity and today's multi-cultural world, a world that truly has become, a global village. Dr Conteh's study lays a foundation on which Christian theology can prepare itself more adequately, if it is to speak effectively to this global village. Biblical Studies scholars, students, pastors, theologians and religionists who are interested in understanding the usage and meaning of biblical words in their original contexts will find this book very helpful.
