Churches under Siege of Persecution and Assimilation
Apostasy in the New Testament Communities, Volume 3: The General Epistles and Revelation
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Professor B. J. Oropeza's three-volume work on perseverance and apostasy in the New Testament is certain to become the standard in the field for years to come . . . it is thoroughly exegetical, without attempting to promote established theological agendas."
-Don Garlington, author of Studies in the New Perspective on Paul
"In the final volume of this major study, B. J. Oropeza completes his survey of the various approaches to apostasy in the New Testament texts and communities. With plenty of insightful observations on each book, and valuable reflections on the similarities and the diversity encountered across the various texts, this work will be a point of reference on this important but somewhat neglected topic for some time to come."

"Professor Oropeza provides readers with a stimulating study of apostasy in early Christian communities. It is an important (and much neglected) topic and warrants a careful, detailed study. What I especially like about Oropeza's approach is his skillful integration of exegesis, biblical theology, and historical and social contexts . . . Readers will come across a number of interpretive gems."
