From the Publisher

"A stimulating and provocative book. Martin Hengel has a confident mastery of an immense range of ancient literature and an ease of presentation. This collection of articles is coherent: all the pieces deal with the crucial first thirty years of the emerging Christian movement. Hengel explores as a genuine historian the shadowy period in question, and comes up with new and surprisingly clear insights."
--Tom Wright, Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, University of St. Andrews

"Combining his incredible knowledge of the Jewish and Hellenistic world with the keen perception of a detective, Martin Hengel casts new light on the dark three first decades of Early Christianity as well as on the mysterious development of its Christology."
--Reinhard Feldmeier, professor of New Testament, Göttingen
