This fifth installment of The First Urban Churches focuses on the urban context of Christian churches in first-century Roman Colossae, Hierapolis, and Laodicea. Building on the methodologies introduced in the first volume, contributors illustrate how an investigation of inscriptions, papyri, archaeological remains, coins, and iconography help readers to understand properly the challenges, threats, and opportunities that the early Christ-believers faced in the cities of the Lycus Valley.
