Synopsis: Art West has done it again. This time, he finds himself in hot water in Corinth, while excavating at a Roman villa with his fiancee, Marissa Okur, as they chart a sometimes bumpy course towards marriage. Art runs into a modern-day prophetess, survives an earthquake, and has to overcome annoying Greek authorities who stand in his way of making more discoveries of relevance to the study of the New Testament. Meanwhile his friend Kahlil el Said and his daughter who live in Jerusalem make a terrible discovery about her former husband the terrorist, with potentially dangerous and devastating consequences. The worlds of archaeology and the Bible converge once more with both heat and light shed on the origins of Christianity in this fourth installment in the series of seven Art West adventures. Endorsements: "High adventure, solid history, beautiful photographs, religious sensitivity, and bad puns: what's not to like?" -A. J. Levine Vanderbilt Divinity School "The Art West adventures are fun, entertaining, and instructive of the world of the New Testament placed in the context of a contemporary story. The fourth in the series, Corinthian Leather, is no exception. Read, enjoy, learn. It is a great way to get a sense of what first-century life was like." -Darrell L. Bock Dallas Theological Seminary "New Testament scholars who have the ability to craft engaging novels are rarer than chicken molars. Yet renowned scholar Ben Witherington and his wife Ann have successfully married historical scholarship with gripping narrative in Corinthian Leather. The book combines superb character development and stimulating adventure with photo-rich historical and archaeological insights into the ancient cities of Paul's day. It's both a fascinating and educational read." -Frank Viola author of From Eternity to Here, Revise Us Again, and Jesus Manifesto "Ben and Ann Witherington sure know how to spin a story! If you take pleasure in being educated and entertained simultaneously, then make time to read Corinthian Leather (and the three previous volumes in the Art West adventure series). I am already looking forward to reading and learning from the rest of these page-turning, biblical archaeological thrillers." -Todd D. Still George W. Truett Theological Seminary "What do you have when you encounter an archaeological mystery, a Greek prophetess, the Greek Communist Party, a professional basketball prospect, and a romance? You're kidding. You really don't know? Another Arthur West adventure, of course. Our intrepid adventurer is at it again, this time exploring the archaeological remains of ancient Corinth, a city rebuilt by Julius Caesar and evangelized by the apostle Paul. Readers will enjoy this imaginative archaeological adventure-Art West's fourth-that sheds light on the Corinth of Paul's visit in AD 51 and the key locals with whom he became acquainted. History and archaeology have never been more fun. Corinthian Leather is another delightful book from Ben and Ann Witherington." -Craig A. Evans Acadia Divinity College Author Biography: Ben Witherington III is Amos Professor of NT for Doctoral Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary and doctoral faculty at St. Andrews University, and the author of over thirty-five books, including New York Times Best Seller The Brother of Jesus. Ann Witherington is Professor of Biology and Environmental Sciences at Asbury College. Ben and Ann have been married for over thirty years and have two adult children, Christy and David.
