From The Publisher:

David Aune, writing for the Library of Early Christianity, a series which examines the historical context in which the New Testament was written, analyzes the forms, genres, and styles available to early Christian writers.


"This magisterial handbook with its careful and lucid analysis of literary types and parallels and valuable bibliographic guidance will surely become a standard work, a constant companion, and a starting point for many a research paper and scholarly study over the next two decades."
—James D. G. Dunn, Professor of Divinitiy, University of Durham, England.
