"Banks's analysis of the early house churches in their historical context has no parallel, either in content or reader accessibility. This updated edition will stimulate both popular and scholarly reflection on the political and social as well as the contemporary theological challenge of the theory and practice of community taught by Paul of Tarsus. I am very pleased that this excellent, readable, and provocative book is being made available to a new generation of readers."
