    DescriptionIn this classic work, Wayne Meeks analyses the earliest extant documents of Christianity - the letters of Paul - to describe the tensions and the texture of life of the first urban Christians. In a new introduction, he describes the evolution of the field of New Testament scholarship over the last two decades of the 20th century, including developments in fields such as archaeology and social history.

    Review quote
    "A much-needed authoritative study." J. L. Houlden, Times Literary Supplement "Many readers are likely to join me in feeling that they have never been so close to their mixed and mixed-up spiritual ancestors as Meeks helps them to be. For those who are open to the possibility that they can find fresh angles on the familiar, this book is not only recommended; it is urged." Martin E. Marty, Christian Century
