Ben Witherington gave Christopher Bryan's Render to Caesar: Jesus, The Early Church, and The Roman Superpower a stellar review commenting among other things that "I would rate this as one of the ten best books written about the NT in the last ten years." When one considers the source, this is high praise indeed.
I decided after running a few errands to visit the local Half-Price bookstore. Well, guess what I found? You guessed it, Render to Caesar! What's more, the book, which retails at $35.00, was marked down to $9.98 and further marked down to $6.98!
This should be a great read, considering Witherington's strong endorsement, and a couple of blurbs on the back of the dusk jacket from N.T. Wright and Daniel Harrington.
