Another review of Stanley, A Rooster for Asklepios

THE BIBLE PLACES BLOG: Recommended: A Rooster for Asklepios. Todd Bolen reviews the book.
As a scholar whose expertise is in the social and religious history of the Greco-Roman world, Professor Stanley knows well the background of the New Testament world. My common sentiment as I read was gratitude—gratitude for the author’s careful research and his ability to weave a fascinating story. Sometimes his descriptions confirmed what I knew, but he usually delved much more deeply than I ever have, and I thoroughly enjoyed soaking it in.
I noted another review by Phil Long at Reading Acts.
