Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This year marks the twenty-five anniversary of the publication of The First Urban Christians by Wayne A. Meeks. In this now-classic work Meeks examined the socio-historical context of Pauline Christianity through the lens of Paul's letters. After The First Urban Christians, edited by Todd D. Still and David G. Horrell, is a collection of seven essays written by established scholars, plus an epilog authored by Meeks himself, that revisits and updates Meeks's landmark volume. Furthermore, After The First Urban Christians offers fresh lines of inquiry for the future study of Paul and his churches in their social setting.

Book News Annotation:

This study edited by Still (Christian scripture, Baylor U.) and Horrell (New Testament studies, U. of Exeter, UK.) reviews Wayne A. Meek's 1983 study The First Urban Christians and presents new ideas and directions of research on early Pauline Christianity. Along with new research focuses, this volume also functions as a guide to the debates aroused since Meek's publication. This book is intended for those studying early Christianity's social history.
