Roman House Churches for Today

I recently picked up a book on sale called Roman House Churches for Today: A Practical Guide for Small Groups by Reta Halteman Finger, assistant profes
sor of New Testament at Messiah College, Grantham, Pennsylvania. Flipping through the book it appears to be partly an examination of the Epistle to the Romans and partly a guide for small groups. There is a unique juxtaposition between for example a chaper entitled “Isis, Mithras, or Stoicism: Religions and Philosophies in Rome” and then actual recipes for agape meals. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to go through this book in greater detail. Have any of you read it? Thoughts?
