Prejudice and Christian Beginnings: Investigating Race, Gender, and Ethnicity in Early Christianity

(Paperback)
$26.00 - Online Price

Overview

While scholars of the New Testament and its Roman environment have recently focused attention on ethnicity, on the one hand, and gender on the other, the two questions have often been discussed separately--and without reference to the contemporary critical study of race theory. This interdisciplinary volume addresses this lack by drawing together new essays by prominent scholars in the fields of New Testament, classics, and Jewish studies. Highly attuned to questions of social location and interpretive method, these essays push against the marginalization of race and ethnicity studies and put the received wisdom of New Testament studies squarely in the foreground. This volume sets the agenda for a new methodology in New Testament studies.
