'It is difficult to know which feature of it is to be admired the most: the immense erudition - the lively examples - the integration of so many different approaches and disciplines - the easy intelligibility of the writing - the lucid ordering of the argument.' --Jack Dean Kingsbury, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology, Union Theological Seminary, Virginia
'It is closely written, but witty and enlivened by homely examples. The author s range of erudition is impressive, but his judgement no less so. An inspiring start to an ambitious project.' --The Catholic Herald
'Eminently accessible to students; scholars will find it interesting and provocative. It deserves a place of privilege on the bookshelf of any serious student of the New Testament.' --The Expository Times
