About the author:
Ben Chenoweth lived in St. Petersburg, Russia with his wife and two children for almost ten years. He currently lives in Melbourne, Australia where he works at the Melbourne School of Theology as their eLearning Coordinator. He enjoys reading, writing, music and playing computer games in equal measures. He has a particular interest in the intersection between theology and the arts.
His first novel, Meeting of Minds, dealt with exploring the galaxy through virtual reality. Later, he wrote a play based on the life of Saul entitled Saul, First King of Israel. The first volume in his Exegetical Histories series, The Ephesus Scroll, looks at the book of Revelation, attempting to explore what the book meant within its original first-century context as well as dealing with what the book means for us today in the 21st century. The second volume in the series, The Corinth Letters, examines the context that gave rise to the books of 1 and 2 Corinthians, while also adding in romance, document forgery, archaeology, and descriptions of delicious Greek cuisine. He also wrote a musical based on the Biblical book of Esther (a free download of the 1998 performance at Lilydale Baptist Church is available on NoiseTrade).

The Corinth Letters
In 55 AD, Linus, a pottery worker of the house of Chloe, is sent by his mistress with a secret message to Paul, the founder of the church in Corinth. The letter that Paul sends in response, however, does not have the desired effect, involving Linus in some nasty church politics. Something more than a letter from Paul will be needed, if the church in Corinth is going to survive.
In 2013 AD, Matt, a young Australian on holiday in Greece, meets Emily, a beautiful young American archaeologist. In an effort to impress her he decides to fake Paul's 'previous' letter to the Corinthians. However, things do not work out quite as he planned and their relationship seems to be over before it even begins.
Become immersed in the historical context of 1 and 2 Corinthians in this exciting sequel to The Ephesus Scroll.
“creatively conceived... illuminating and engaging... hard to put down” Dr. Colin Kruse, author of 2 Corinthians (Tyndale New Testament Commentary)
