About the Author

Christopher B. Zeichmann teaches at Emmanuel College in the University of Toronto and Ryerson University.


Christopher Zeichmann offers a fascinating and much needed study on the Roman military and its implications for the study of the New Testament. Zeichmann's work brings necessary clarity and correction to long held popular and scholarly assumptions, and will no doubt be an asset for both specialists working in this particular area as well as for generalists reconstructing the political landscape of the New Testament world. -- Adam Winn, Assistant Professor of Christian Studies, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor
In this stimulating and needed book, Christopher Zeichmann brings into focus a neglected but important topic in New Testament studies. He identifies the complexities and diverse depictions of the Roman army in NT writings and highlights a variety of perspectives. Not everyone will find all the analysis convincing but the discussion is insightful, researched, and significant. -- Warren Carter, Brite Divinity School at TCU Fort Worth TX
