    It kind of depends on what exactly you put in this pattern.
    ほど=(to the) extent (of)
    Cの中で = among C

    http://ejje.weblio.jp/sentence/content/の中で ほど gives some examples, such as
    キリストの恵みの中で生きる者ほど、豊かな者はいません。
    > There is no person as "rich" as (to the extent of) a person living "inmidst" Christ's blessing,

    > "and most rich is he who is much with Jesus."

    Or this one:

    おそらく、人間の持って生まれた感情の中で、虚栄心ほど抑えにくいものはないだろう。

    >Probably, among the emotions a human holds at birth, there is none so hard to supress as (to the extent of) vanity.
    >There is, perhaps, not one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as vanity.
