Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Essays consider the complex phenomenon of asceticism in the books of the New Testament, a topic generally masked or underplayed within previous New Testament scholarship. Addressing each of the New Testament's books, perspectives and insights offered by the essays in this volume have enormous implications for the understanding of the ascetic impulse among early Christians. Lacks a subject index. The editors are associated with the University of Toronto and Union Theological Seminary. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
