Comments on the First Edition...

"Those concerned with Christian beginnings will find Malherbe stimulating and incisive on the New Testament."

Robert M. Gratn, Journal of Religion

"The author is a scholar of great learning. I found the footnotes to be extremely useful, and the challenge of the book that a new consesus has emerged is a genuine contribution to continuing debate." Robin Scroggs, Journal of the American Academy of Religion

"An interesting and informed introduction to an important new development in the study of earliest Christianity." - Victor P. Furnish, Perkins Journal

"The book constitutes a major challenge to the depictions of early Christianity - especially of the Pauline Wing in earlier scholarly work." - Howard Clark Kee, Reflection
