"As interesting to read as they are informative, the volumes in this important series deal in new ways with topics and materials that illuminate the life and literature of early Christianity....Taken as a whole, the series offers various new avenues of approach to an understanding of the social, intellectual, and literary environment of the early Christian movement."
