From The Publisher:


"The authors deserve our thanks for bringing together in one volume the information necessary to understand the social world of Early Christianity. Since The New Testament in Its Social Environment is written in clear and accessible language, it will be of use especially in introductory courses. I am happy to commend it to the serious attention of teachers and students of Christian origins."
—Elisabeth Schusser Fiorenza, Talbot Professor of New Testament Studies, Episcopal Divinity School
